Recycling: food waste

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

How you can recycle food waste

​You can compost your food waste at home. Home composting kits are available from most large garden centres.

How you can reuse food waste

  • get the Olio food app. The app connects people with local business so unused and leftover food can be donated and redistributed to those that can use it
  • the Love Food Hate Waste campaign website has lots of good ideas about how to avoid 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 Green Waste as they must be incinerated
