Compost

Volume 488: debated on Monday 2 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many in-vessel composting sites have been licensed by the Environment Agency in each region of England. (258196)

The following table indicates the number of in-vessel and windrow composting sites that are licensed in each Environment Agency region to date. Prior to standard permits being introduced, the Environment Agency’s permit recording system did not distinguish between in-vessel and windrow composting and it would therefore incur disproportionate cost to collate figures for in-vessel alone.
