Instead of being avoided altogether, this food waste will:
1. Rot in landfill at high taxpayer expense
2. Cost your household up to £720 extra per year in personal food bills
3. Pump harmful methane gas into the atmosphere
Additionally in Leicester City residents throw away around 27,000 tonnes of food waste each year in the residual bins, most of which goes to Wanlip AD plant.
