Food waste or items that still contain (even a little) food must be put in your green household waste bin. It must never be put in blue recycling or brown garden waste bins. The contents of our brown garden waste bins is laid outside and turned intermittently to break down into compost. By law, food waste cannot be included in this process.
Other recycling options: Raw fruit and vegetable food waste can be composted at home. Discounted compost bins are available from www.getcomposting.com.
