Waveney food waste

Food waste is no longer be to be disposed of using the green bin. If you do generate food waste, the most environmental ways to deal with it are:

  • Donate in-date goods and excess harvest to neighbours or food banks
  • Turn excess vegetables and fruit into freezeable soups and sauces
  • Put vegetables, fruit and garden waste on your compost heap
  • Use a wormery for food waste that cannot be home composted

You can find useful advice on how to store and use excess and leftover food on theĀ Love Food Hate Waste website.

NB a few households have brown food caddies for food waste only, following an earlier pilot scheme. Collection of food caddies, for these households only, will continue for the time being.
