Weekly food waste collection trial

​The trial seeks to identify the practical issues and levels of food waste recycling that could be achieved if a similar service was introduced borough-wide (where practicable).

If your flat is included in the trial you will have already received a food waste caddy and information leaflet and a larger communal food waste recycling container will be conveniently located somewhere at ground level. 

If your flat is not included in this trial, please focus on reducing avoidable food waste and/or consider using a wormery or Bokashi home composting system (getcomposting.com).

We plan to expand food waste recycling services to all blocks of flats (where practicable) by April 2022.

If you have a suggestion on how communal food recycling facilities could be installed at your block or estate then please contact us on foodrecycling@richmond.gov.uk
