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