What food waste you can recycle
The best way to recycle your food is to keep a small bin (or caddy) in your kitchen. You can order one of these free from the Council or buy one that fits your kitchen design from most homeware shops or online retailers. You could also make your own caddy by reusing a suitable container such as an ice cream tub.
You can then regularly transfer the contents of your caddy to your larger outdoor food recycling box, which is emptied weekly by recycling crews.
