Why food waste shouldn't go into General Waste bins
Over 1/3 of all food produced globally goes to waste, thats almost $1 trillion worth of wasted food and money!
Additionally, when food is disposed of in a landfill it rots and becomes a significant source of methane – a dangerous greenhouse gas with 21 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide. By choosing a specific food waste stream you are making positive changes to reduce greenhouse gasses.
By segregating food waste for proper disposal you are not only saving the environment, but you will also be saving money. For tips on how to reduce your food waste wastage read our blog .
