Weekly food waste collections
Published: 23 October 2020
Feed your food bin
Surrey Environment Partnership Chairman Neil Dallen said: "We are spending more time at home, which means our bins are getting fuller. So, it's the perfect time for Surrey residents to make the most of their weekly food waste collection. Recycling food waste is not only good for the environment, but it also saves money that could be spent on essential services."
If your bins are bursting, then what better time to watch your waste and take advantage of Surrey's weekly food waste collections?
All food waste can be recycled, so if your leftover food doesn't make it into one of your winter warmers, then be sure to caddy it.
There are lots of hints and tips about using leftover food on the Surrey Environment Partnership website.
Not only will recycling your food waste free up room in your rubbish bin, you'll also be helping the environment as recycled food waste is turned into fertiliser or electricity.
Contact your local district or borough council's website to get hold of your free food caddy today. And remember you can keep your caddy fresh by lining it with a plastic bag. Simply use shopping bags, pedal bin liners or even bread bags.
