Over the last year a project in Ireland has been looking at sources and scale of plastic in food waste collections.  There have been over 50 waste characterisation studies done on commercial and household organic waste collections to determine the level of contamination. Products have been analysed if they contain plastics. The project is at a stage where possible solutions to eliminate plastics are being proposed. At this workshop we presented the draft findings and outline possible solutions in which [people voted on what you thought were practical.
