- ALL Food waste should always be placed in your lime green-topped FOGO bin to be composted (INCLUDING ALL fruit and vegetables, bread, dairy, eggs, meat, bones, fish and seafood). Food scraps should be placed into a council supplied compostable liner before being put in the FOGO bin. These liners are specially designed to break down during the composting process so they are the only bags that should be used in the FOGO bin. You can also wrap your food scraps in newspaper and place into the bin. You should try to minimise food waste in your home.
Roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year or approximately 1.6 billion tonnes gets lost or wasted.Food loss and waste also amount to a major misuse of resources including land, water, energy, labour and capital and needlessly produces greenhouse gas emissions, leading to global warming and climate change.Use the link below to find easy recipes to transform your leftovers into exciting and delicious meals.
