Can food waste go into the garden waste bins?

No, the green bins are only for garden waste such as leaves, twigs, grass cuttings and dead flowers. The composting facility where the contents of the green bins are taken can only process garden waste. Check what goes in each bin

If you would like to recycle your fruit and vegetable peelings, you can purchase a reduced price home compost bin
