|T26 - Treatment of kitchen waste in a wormery|
If you are using a small-scale wormery to process kitchen waste and produce compost you will need to apply for a T26 exemption.
With this exemption you can:
i. treat up to 6 tonnes of paper and cardboard (20 01 01) and
ii. biodegradable kitchen and canteen waste (municipal, commercial, industrial and institutional) (20 01 08)
iii. during a twelve month period to
iv. produce a stable sanitised vermicompost.
If your kitchen waste comes from a premise which handles meat or products of animal origin you will need to comply with the Animal By Product Regulations. Unfortunately food waste treated in a wormery will not meet the temperature requirements of the ABPR, so you may only be able to use a T26 on an on-site situation i.e. where the food waste is produced on-site, treated on-site and the finished compost is used on site. It's best to discuss your own particular circumstances with your local Animal health Office.
