Further details

Try to keep food waste to a minimum by only buying and cooking what you need. More ideas for portion sizing and using up leftovers can be found at www.lovefoodhatewaste.com 

Food waste can also be placed in your waste wheeled bin but please wrap it in a plastic bag before doing so to minimise any smells. 

If you have a large amount of food waste to dispose of e.g. from a freezer fault or power cut, you can bring it to any Recycling Centre in a bin liner. Please hand it to a member of staff and explain that it is waste food as the staff often open bin liners to further sort and recycle mixed waste.

Some food waste such as potato peelings, fruit skins, tea bags and coffee grounds can be added to your home compost bin. For more details visit www.getcomposting.com or www.recyclenow.com/home_composting
