Recycling food waste
Why recycle your food waste?
When recycled, food waste can be turned into something useful. Your food waste is taken to a special processing plant where it is used to generate electricity to power homes and the local community. It also produces a fertiliser which can be used in farming. When you put your food waste in your rubbish bin it often ends up in landfill, where it rots and releases methane - a harmful greenhouse gas..
Food for thought
Remember there is no amount too small. The best thing we can do with our food is enjoy it but some waste like banana skins, tea bags and plate scrapings are inevitable.
