Why sort your food waste?

Because everyone benefits!

Sorting means giving a second life to waste that represents 40% of the content of our white bags. When it is recycled into compost, your food waste is returned to the soil where it takes its part in our natural food cycle. We can also transform it into electricity and heat.

In short: it is full of richness, so why waste it?

It is easy. All you have to do is put it out on the street each week along the front of your home.

Neighborhood composting

Deposit your waste in a neighbourhood compost to produce 100% natural fertiliser and take action for the environment whilst socialising with your neighbours. It is also a great solution if you lack space at home.
