We were so inspired by the LoveFoodhatewasteGreatist and Mashable UK information about food waste, we decided to make an infographic of our top 5 facts about food waste.

5 Facts About Food Waste Infographic

Therefore it is important we try and reduce as much food waste as possible, however we do understand that sometimes it is just inevitable, so Recycle Now have found some ways to accommodate that; Egg shells, banana skins and tea bags are never going to be on the menu.

Home composting is a great way to stop this sort of waste ending up in landfill, and our gardens will really thank us for it. If you live in an area that has a local food waste recycling collection service, you can use this to dispose of anything you can’t eat, or compost at home. It can be recycled into a good quality soil improver or fertiliser and even generate electricity that can be fed back into the national grid.
