A trial to turn food waste into electricity in Lincolnshire has been hailed as a "great success" after 314 tonnes of food were collected in the first year.
The pilot scheme has been running in South Kesteven for the past 12 months.
Food waste can be turned into soil conditioner and generate electricity using anaerobic digestion
The council said 80.2% of properties in the area had taken part, compared to averages of between 35% and 55% in similar pilots elsewhere in the country.
It's thought that the scheme may now be rolled out across the county.
