    Hello,

    A local council is looking for ways to recycle the organic waste that is collected each week by trucks. Currently they dump it into landfill and let it putrefy, poison the land and water-tables and release methane. They are interested in exploring alternatives.

    Are there any examples of large scale organic waste recycling already in production? Examples exist of shopping malls and education institutes that have started using bokashi systems to process their food court and canteen waste. However, I haven't heard of anything quite on the scale of municipal waste (hundreds of tonnes of organic waste per week). I think bokashi could scale to that size but finding containers big enough to seal the waste within could be challenging.

    Any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated.
    Thank you.
