Cambridge City Council is responsible for rubbish and recycling collections from residents and also some businesses in the city. Kitchen caddys and liners are provided to help residents collect the food waste which is disposed on in the green bins with garden waste. Businesses can be provided with smaller brown bins for food waste. The food waste is sent to Waterbeach to be made into compost. We composted 21% of our waste via the green bins last year.
We also provide advice on waste prevention and run campaigns such as Love Food Hate Waste. “Reducing food waste is something everyone can do and we hope people will be inspired by the campaign and maybe save some money too!”
