Food

Waste food as it rots creates methane in landfill, so eat it all up!. We recommend you only compost raw food and not meat, fish, bread or dairy. If you want to compost cooked food you should be use a wormery instead.  ( More on composting and see Wiggly Wigglers in Home & Garden section).
Of course it is better to avoid waste in the first place though, so try not to waste so much food, the average family could save about £60 per month on shopping bills!

You can now put any waste cooked foods, meat, cheese and kitchen greens etc in compostable (plastic) bags, and add them to the green garden waste wheelie bin for fortnightly roadside collection.
