Food Waste

foodwastebrochureWe are making changes to the way your food waste is collected so that you can recycle more and we can process it in an environmentally friendly way. Approximately 20% of the waste in an average household bin is food waste. By participating in this service you will help reduce the amount of food waste that ends up in landfill.
