We can all make small changes to help reduce food waste, including:

 

  • Plan our shopping so that we don’t buy too much food
  • Plan our meals so that food doesn’t go out of date
  • Be disciplined with portion sizes so that nothing is left uneaten on the plate
  • Use the freezer more effectively, leftovers can be reused another day

We recognise that, despite our best intentions, some food waste goes in the bin. Food waste that goes into the bin will eventually be sent to the local incinerator and burnt for energy recovery.

THIS ISN’T THE WORST WAY TO GET RID OF FOOD WASTE BUT THERE IS A BETTER WAY.

Dudley Council does not operate a food waste collection service because it costs a lot of money and benefits only a few people.  In an ideal world every one of us would make sure we didn’t waste food, here are a few ideas to help stop food from becoming waste.

Food Waste

DUDLEY COUNCIL HAS 110 GREEN JOHANNA ‘HOT COMPOSTERS’ FOR SALE AT A HUGELY DISCOUNTED PRICE.

RRP £119.00 - COST TO YOU £54.00 INCLUDING DELIVERY

These composters are similar in appearance to a normal compost unit but with much better functionality, the principal difference being that the Johanna takes all food waste, cooked and uncooked, and turns it into compost within six months.   The Johanna’s unique, patented aeration system and thicker wall sections ensure that temperatures inside the composter are kept evenly high, whilst its sealed built-in base facilitates aeration, insulation and protects against rats and other vermin.

 

You can even put your garden waste in with your plate scrapings, tea bags, chicken bones, fish and other food waste. The hot composter is easy to use and will recycle your waste material into nutrient rich compost for you to put back on your garden.  This is good for your garden and will save you from purchasing compost.

 

The units normally sell for £119, however we are offering the Green Johanna ‘Hot composters’ for £54.00 (including delivery).  We have 110 reserved at this discounted, subsidised price, available on a first come first served basis.
