Retain brown bin collections

We the undersigned petition the council to Retain the separate brown bin food waste collections as burning food waste or sending it to landfill is ecologically unsound even if it does save a little money.

Barnet plan to scrap the dedicated food waste collection which currently goes to anaerobic digestion. Instead the food waste will either be burned or sent to landfill. The saving it will make is £2 per household per year or around 4p a week. This goes against the advice of the London assembly which says "We recommend that boroughs should endeavour to include separate food waste collections in their waste management regimes across all property types."
