Three district councils in partnership with Buckinghamshire County Council are working collaboratively to increase food waste recycling. Households in Chiltern, South Bucks and Wycombe districts with a food recycling service will soon receive an information pack about the benefits of food recycling, including introductory rolls of plastic bags to line kitchen caddies. read more

At the same time, yellow stickers are being placed on rubbish bins to encourage residents to separate and recycle food waste.

The councils now accept food waste wrapped in plastic bags and newspaper. The idea is to make this service easy and convenient, by using bags you would find around the home. And, with weekly food waste collections food isn’t lingering in the rubbish bin for two weeks.

Recycling your food waste has two environmental benefits. Firstly the gases produced during reprocessing create energy. Secondly the residue from this process produces fertiliser used in agriculture.

This activity coincides with National Recycling Week 25th September – 1st October

The Fighting Food Waste project is fully funded by DCLG and managed by the Buckinghamshire Waste Partnership. The project aims to encourage residents to recycle as much of their unavoidable food waste as they can, and reduce as much avoidable food waste as possible.
