Food & Garden

Top Tips!


Even if you don’t have a compost heap you can recycle your food waste at home. Your new waste food collection service allows you to separate all of your  leftovers such as meat, vegetables and bones into a separate container or food caddy and then you can put that in with your garden waste both of which is recycled into a compost for agriculture. 

Separating your food waste allows you to see how much food you actually throw out, want to make your food go further simply visit LoveFoodHateWaste for lots of delicious recipes made from leftovers.
