What do I do with food?

Food waste symbol

You can recycle food using the appropriate container for your recycling and waste collections service or at a Recycling and Waste Park:

Trolibocs service

Bag service

Communal bin service


Recycle food in your silver kitchen caddy lined with a bio-bag.

Place the filled bag of food waste in your orange caddy.

Alternatively, in-date dried or tinned food can be donated to a local food bank (external website).
