City looks to tie up food waste deal
The pilot scheme would see city residents supplied with plastic boxes, which will be collected on a weekly basis, adding to those already handed out for newspapers, packaging and garden waste.
If successful, it will be rolled out on a permanent basis across the city.
A spokeswoman said: "The procurement of the AD facility marks a significant step towards a zero waste future.
"At the moment the majority of food waste collected in the area is sent to landfill."
