Food waste

Check which properties can have food waste collected, when it’s collected, and what goes in your food waste bin.

What happens to your food waste

Your food waste is collected with garden waste and is composted. We use an enclosed, intensive method of composting, with accurate temperature control and monitoring. This makes sure the waste is fully sanitised before it's matured and screened for use.

After three months it will have been transformed into nutrient-rich compost, which is used in parks, gardens and agriculture, helping to grow more food. Compost is also available to donate to local community gardening projects, please email to enquire about a compost donation
