Worms have landed at Luton Airport Parkway train station to do their bit for the environment. The airport station has a new 'wormery', to help reduce the landfill waste it generates.
The worms eat food waste and turn it into high quality compost and concentrated liquid feed, which is used to feed plants and trees around the station. Luton Airport Parkway manager Joe Healy said: ‘It is a good way of helping the environment. There were 250 worms in there initially and they are breeding in there now.'
'We normally have enough food waste to fill it up 2 or 3 times a week. As much as a third of the contents of the average dustbin could be turned into compost. A lot of this waste is left at our stations and a wormery is an ideal and environmentally friendly solution for disposing of this.’
