Why should I recycle food waste?
Recycling in this way is good for the environment, and saves money too.
Food and garden waste placed in the green-lidded bin is turned into compost and soil improver, instead of going into landfill.
If food waste goes into the black bin it costs more to get rid of, as well as harming the environment.
