GLA food modelling this data informed by the Defra Commercial and Industrial Waste survey 2009 estimates around 40,000 tonnes of London's non-domestic food waste per year is treated via AD or in in-vessel composting facilities.

Last year the Environment Agency introduced the Electronic Duty of Care (EDOC) system which should make it easier to report commercial waste movements more accurately.
