Recycle food waste and start composting

Why recycle food waste?

When food and garden waste is sent to landfill it decomposes without oxygen (anaerobically). This process produces odorous gases and methane, which has a global warming potential 25 times greater than carbon dioxide.

Also our garbage bins contain approximately 50% food and garden waste. That means composting your food you can cut your rubbish in half.
