Making Food Waste History
Food waste accounts for around a third of our rubbish bins costing Suffolk taxpayers £4 million a year in waste disposal costs. Our new food waste campaign has lots of handy reminders to help you make food waste 'history'.
Travel through time in our new quirky video to find out more - your family could save up to £700 a year! Can you afford not to take a look?

How can I recycle my food waste?
OPTION 1: Got a garden?
Why not compost at home? It's easy to get started and there are a range of composting systems available at subsidised prices for Suffolk residents. There are also wormeries, hot bins and bokashi food digesters that can compost your cooked food waste too! To see our latest offers go to: www.suffolk.getcomposting.com.
