Top Tips

Lighten your Green Bin

  • To reduce weight make sure that used food containers are clean and dry.
  • Invest in a refillable water bottle, coffee cup and lunch box to reduce waste when on the move.
  • Look for goods with less packaging.
  • Choose goods in refillable packaging such as detergents & coffee.
  • Look for compostable & recycling symbols on packaging.

Lighten your Brown Bin

  • The average household wastes up to a third of all the food they buy, so check your cupboards and fridge before you shop.
  • Use your freezer – it helps prevent food waste.
  • Make sure fruit and vegetables are stored correctly.
  • You can use a composter for uncooked vegetable or garden waste instead of putting it into the brown bin.

Lighten your Grey Bin

  • If you understand what items go where, you can make sure that you are not weighing down your general waste bin with items that can be more cost-effectively disposed of in your green or brown bin.
  • Remove any water or liquid to make it as light as possible.
