Let's talk rubbish.
I don't know about you - but my recycle bin is always chockers by the end of the fortnight, and my green waste bin remains fairly empty (not much of a gardener!) and I always think "Why is the blue bin so small?? I need a bigger one!"
Then I learnt a nifty fact, that you can put food scraps into the green bin, marvellous! Actually, I've leant loads of handy hints of how to sort my trash.
East Waste has teamed up with the Local Government Association and the My Local Services app to help deliver tips to residents about their household waste disposal.
As a member of the My Local Services app, residents can receive weekly tips about how to avoid, reduce, reuse, recycle and compost their waste correctly. Additional links to book hard waste collections and report missed bins have also been incorporated into the app.
The Why Waste It campaign also has a full A-Z recycling guide available online to answer your questions about what waste product goes where, to help you make more informed choices and help us reduce the amount of waste going into landfill.
Have a play on the A-Z list and discover the best way to make the most of your bins.
