What goes in my food waste box?
You get two bins for food waste: one big box we collect every week, and one small kitchen caddy for you to use in the house.
Use a starch bag to line the caddy or, you can try old newspaper or paper bags but do not use plastic bags. You can buy starch bags at supermarkets.
How is food waste recycled?
Food waste collected in your brown food box at home is sent to Biogen in Hoddeson and goes through the natural process of anaerobic-digestion to transform food waste into green energy and food grade fertiliser. This video looks at a method called anaerobic digestion.
