BUCKS County Coun­cil has given out four con­tracts to treat the county’s food and gar­den waste over the next two years.

The con­tracts, worth £2.2m, will en­sure that the 17,000 tonnes of food waste gen­er­ated in Bucks each year will be pro­cessed lo­cally in anaer­o­bic di­gesters.

About 41,000 tonnes of gar­den waste each year will be turned com­post.

War­ren Whyte, cab­i­net mem­ber for plan­ning and en­vi­ron­ment, said the con­tracts, with Agrivert, FCC, Shanks and Coun­trystyle Re­cy­cling, re­in­forced the county coun­cil’s com­mit­ment to achieve its tar­get of re­cy­cling 60 per cent of waste by 2020. The new con­tracts start in Fe­bru­ary.
