Steps to Recycle Your Food Waste Better

Too Much

Food waste can make up half of the contents of a waste bin.

More Potent

When food scraps end up in landfill it produces methane. If this gas is not captured, a greenhouse gas 25 times more potent than CO2 is released.

Contamination

Food and liquids can't go in the recycling bin - it ruins the recycling process.

Check what food you already have.

Plan your meals for the week.

Make a shopping list and stick to it.

02 REUSE

Make lunch from leftovers.

Freeze fruit for smoothies.

Freeze veggie scraps for homemade snacks.

03 RECYCLE
