Food waste

It’s best to reduce food waste where possible; a family of four could also save £70 a month just by reducing the amount of food they throw away.

Any food that is left over should be recycled. Not only is recycling better for the planet but you could be helping to save more than £4 million a year because it costs less than half to recycle food waste than it does to dispose of it as rubbish.

So putting all your food waste in your caddy every week means you’re helping to protect council services like social care, libraries and schools.
