This is an interesting scheme to recycle food waste which is being offered on a trial basis in East Renfrewshire. People are given compostable bags in a sealed container which is then collected by the local council. All food waste can be put into the containers including scrapings from plates, bones and cooked and uncooked waste. East Renfrewshire Council believe that the scheme could cut the amount of waste they send to landfill sites by 35%.
