Dear BEST members,

There is an organization in the UK called Waste and Resources Action 
Program (WRAP) and they are providing funding to waste collection firms 
for their food waste collection services. This funding will keep 26,000 
tons of food waste out of landfills. Restaurants, pubs, and cafes supply 
the food waste that will be used as fertilizers or as a fuel source for 
anaerobic digestion. WRAP will provide waste collection companies, such 
as Greenability and Leeds Paper, with guidance on how to save money and 
reduce their food waste. The funding is worth 500,000 pounds and will be 
awarded to 7 companies. A representative from WRAP says they have 
already received over 40 applications.
