Food waste scheme is a waste of time.

A FOOD waste scheme will not be extended to thousands of Pendle homes amid concerns over the future of Lancashire’s recycling regime.

Leftovers from kitchen caddies at 7,000 terraced homes were supposed to be dealt with at county-run sites, initially in Leyland.

But the opening of the works has been delayed for several weeks and the future of the Huncoat site remains unclear after the county council lost a compulsory purchase battle there. Ed. Ha!

The food scraps, collected as part of a pilot initiative, are currently being sent to a private company, TEG Environmental based in Todmorden.

But the borough’s Liberal Democrats were keen to extend the kitchen caddies scheme to an extra 7,000 homes, at a cost of £100,000.

Liberal democrats? Are you kidding me?

Coun David Whipp said: “The initial scheme has been a great success and I am sure it would get a fantastic response if it was extended.”

Of course you would. You would hold a public consultation, listen to all the complaints from 7000 residents and then declare overwhelming support.

Bell end.

Do you want one of these?
