Once we remove your food waste from the highway it goes to a state of the art facility in Splott, called an Anaerobic Digestion (AD) plant. This facility is run by Dwr Cymru Welsh Water, in partnership with Cardiff Council and the Vale of Glamorgan Council.
This animation describes the process which takes place in the AD plant.
The treatment of food waste counts towards our recycling rates. Don’t forget your business can recycle its food waste for as little as £1 per week.
