Using the food scraps bin is a simple and effective way to minimise waste at home. It’s important we try to divert as much food and green waste as possible from landfill, where it turns into methane, a toxic greenhouse gas. The world’s food waste currently makes up 6.7% of all carbon emissions!
You can add the following items to your kerbside bin:
Please don’t include any plastic, compostable or disposable food packaging, cutlery, cups or any liquid.
A good tip is to set a phone alarm as a reminder to take it out of the freezer for collection – or download the Antenno app which sends reminders of kerbside collection days!
Place your bins side by side on the kerbside where space allows. Space them out slightly to enable the truck collection arm to easily retrieve them.
