Dorset Butcher "Beating Head Against Wall" Over Recycling

Stuart Jury - County Town Butchers

7:36am 10th June 2014

A Dorchester butcher says he's frustrated he can't be part of a new food waste recycling service for town centre businesses.

Stuart Jury from County Town Butchers wants to take advantage of a 50% subsidy for food waste recycling, being offered by the Dorchester BID.

But he's been told by the Dorset Waste Partnership he can't sign up to the scheme because there's too much animal bone in what he's throwing away.

Stuart disagrees:

"They're unwilling to take the material because they're classing it as having too much bone in the waste.  I don't have a great amount of bone waste in my bin.  Doing it through the DWP would cost me £7 per month instead of the £64 a month I'm paying at the moment so it would be quite a saving."

"Somebody from the Dorchester Waste Partnership needs to come in and discuss with me how I can get rid of my waste.  It feels like I am beating my head against a brick wall. Nobody is coming forward and I would like to be part of it."

The Dorset Waste Partnership have told Wessex FM the food waste recycling scheme is for cafes and restaurants and they can't take waste from a butcher as they're not able to deal with it.
