Food waste recycling

Residents in Telford and Wrekin will soon be able to recycle their leftovers and kitchen waste with the introduction of a new weekly food waste kerbside collection service.

The free service starts in September and means that householders across the borough will have a service dedicated to food waste for the first time. Waste that is collected will be converted into energy and fertiliser.

Each household will be given a kitchen caddy for their food waste, which comes with a supply of free biodegradable liners, as well as a larger outdoor caddy which can be presented at the kerbside every week. Similar food services across the country have proved popular and have led to increases in recycling rates.

Householders can expect to have their new food caddies delivered from the middle of August onwards.
