The REA Organics Forum are happy to present an up-to-date map of the operational (permitted / licensed) compost sites in the UK, including those that are a part of the (CCS) Compost Certification Scheme (PAS100 certified) and are Animal By-Product (ABP) Approved – i.e. can accept food waste.

If your compost facility is operational and not included on our map or is included and you would rather it was not, please contact us directly and the necessary amendments will be made.

Mapped composting facilities cover those operated under permits (or licences in Scotland) but not the many small-scale, outdoor ones operated under registered exemptions.

Author: Emily Jessamy, 2022.  Made using publicly available data from CCS, GOV.UK, Environmental Agency, SEPA, Natural Resources Wales and DAERA sources.

Note: To open the key to the map, click the white icon in the map header with an arrow to the left, and click the checkmarks to filter out certain types of facilities by certification.
