Herefordshire Council could be the first Council in the country to use cargo bikes to collect and dispose of food waste if a decision is given the green light later today.


It’s ground breaking innovation

Today Herefordshire Council will be making a decision on future waste collection procurement and part of that procurement will be about using cargo bikes on a few thousand houses in Hereford City.

It will mean that the household food waste will be collected by cargo bike, resulting in ZERO Carbon collection.

The waste that is collected can then be transformed into the highest quality compost, which can then be sold or even better used to enrich our Herefordshire soil ,which will be a small but 'significant' step to help with the phosphate issues we are experiencing in our beautiful rivers and support our farming communities.
