Recycling hints and tips
Love Food, Hate Waste offers tips on how to reduce the amount of food your household wastes. Their site includes recipes using food which would normally be thrown away, and tips about foods where every part can be eaten (for example, leaves, stalks, etc.).
Recycle Now helps people to recycle more things, more often. Their site includes a tool to find places locally where you can recycle a specific item and a handy guide to understanding recycling symbols.
By composting garden and kitchen waste at home, you'll reduce the amount of rubbish you send to landfill. Using a compost bin for items like raw fruit and vegetable peelings, grass and hedge clippings, egg shells, tea bags, and thin cardboard packaging will give you free compost which you can use to help your garden bloom.
As well as compost bins, food waste digesters and hot composters let you compost all of your household food waste.
We've teamed up with Get Composting to provide lower prices on home compost bins. To take advantage of the offer, visit the Get Composting website.
