Garden waste

Why separate GFT?

It’s important to separate vegetable peelings, fruit and garden waste. From these materials compost and biogas can be made. GFT that is thrown in with the regular waste get’s burnt and we don’t want that!

What happens to my GFT?

Around two thirds of GFT is made directly into compost. The remainder is fermented creating not only compost but also biogas (green gas). Compost is used by farmers, gardeners and by municipalities to improve the soil and ground quality.
