Compost while you cook

Whether you're an amateur chef or the kind of person who just eats to live, you can help the environment by composting while you cook.

Brian Turner shows you how easy it is to cut down on the rubbish sent to landfill in our short film.

Just collect your veg peelings, tea bags, egg boxes, egg shells, coffee grounds, filter papers, old flowers and kitchen paper in a kitchen caddy that sits on your worktop or maybe a small bin designated just for compostable waste.

The contents can then be transferred to your garden compost bin. Some district or borough councils offer a food waste collection, please contact them for further information

We have teamed up with Evengreener to offer residents compost bins at very reasonable prices. And you could buy a kitchen caddy at the same time as you buy a compost bin.
