On average 30 per cent of the waste in our green bins is food, which could be put in our brown garden and food waste bins instead. Putting food waste in your brown bin means it can be composted, this not only reduces disposal costs but it increases recycling rates and helps the environment.
Will I save money reducing food waste?
Yes. Wasting food costs the average household £480 per year so helping to prevent food waste can have financial benefits for you and your family.
