Recycling: food waste

You cannot recycle food waste
Food waste

​Unless you are home composting, dispose of food waste with your general household waste.

Home composting kits are available from most large garden centres.

How you can reduce or reuse food waste


Good to know

  • ​bokashi bins and wormeries are smaller alternatives to large compost bins
  • do not compost harmful plants (Japanese knotweed, bracken, broad and curly leaf dock, ragwort, rhododendron, hemlock, and yew). They must be disposed of using a different container at La Collette as they must be incinerated
