More time at home means our bins are fuller. If your bins are bursting, then what better time to watch your waste and take advantage of the weekly food waste collections.

All food waste can be recycled, so if your leftover food doesn’t get eaten, then put it in your green food caddy. Not only will recycling your food waste free up room in your rubbish bin, you’ll also be helping the environment as recycled food waste is turned into fertiliser or electricity.

Fill in the Council’s form to get hold of your free green food caddy. Remember you can keep your caddy clean by lining it with a plastic bag, such as shopping bags, pedal bin liners or even bread bags.
