Food waste ready for recycling

Food waste, we all have it, whether it's vegetable peelings or leftovers.  

The first step should always be to reduce the food waste you produce through careful planning and storage which saves you money and valuable resources.

The next step is to use the unavoidable food waste that is left over to its best effect. It could have a second life as compost or liquid fertiliser to help grow more food, but it may also be as a sustainable energy source in the form of biogas for heat and/or electricity, vehicle fuel or as a natural gas replacement within the national gas grid network.
