Neil Box CCBC Waste Management Officer

The Recycling Team are hitting the streets with their door knocking campaign to encourage and support residents to recycle more food waste.

There is no amount of food waste too small every bit of recycled food waste reduces the release of destructive greenhouse gases. When your food waste is recycled instead of being sent to landfill, the gases are captured and converted into green energy.

The team are visiting households in the county to support residents to recycle and provide bins and advice where necessary. The team are often asked how to line the household caddy – the answer is simple there is no need to use a bag, you can line your house caddy with newspaper, put the items in lose or use a biodegradable bag if you wish.

Participating in food waste recycling not only has positive environmental factors it could land some lucky residents some high street vouchers as participants are entered into a quarterly prize draw.

Cllr. Nigel George, Cabinet Member with responsibility for the Environment said, “Following the positive news that we are retaining the current recycling methods for residents we are taking further positive steps to work proactively to increase participation. The Team are out there knocking doors and engaging with residents in an effort to nurture healthier lives and create healthier spaces.”
