What happens to your food waste?
Your food waste is taken to a special processing plant where it is recycled into compost which is
used on farms and community gardens.
By recycling your food waste you will reduce the amount of food waste in landfill sites. Rotting
food produces methane gas which contributes to climate change and, as the cost of sending food
waste to landfill is increasing, you will help the council and its residents save money too.
