A facility designed to turn food waste from households in Oxfordshire into compost has received its first delivery.
The plant, near Ardley, cost £5m and is run by Agrivert. The company said it could divert up to 40,000 tonnes of waste from landfill each year.
Oxford City and Cherwell District councils have already sent food waste to the plant.
Heat from the compost is being used to warm the offices at the facility.
The compost produced will be used on agricultural land within 2.5 miles (4km) of the site.
