Recycle your food


Some food can't be eaten, for example, tea bags, fruit and vegetable peelings and egg shells. But this can be used to create compost which will give structure to your soil and make your garden flourish.

Meat and cooked foods can't be composted in the same way, but there are options for them. Even if you don't have a garden, there's a compost solution for you.

If you are a resident of Eastleigh Borough Council, your food waste could be collected and used to generate electricity.
