In less than two months Bracknell Forest residents will be able to take advantage of a new food waste recycling scheme, as part of the council’s plans to help tackle climate change and reduce its impact on the environment.

With collections starting from 1 March 2021, residents of houses will be able to recycle all their food waste including cooking oils and leftover pet food. Food waste will then be collected from its outdoor caddy and taken to an anaerobic digestion plant where it’s made into energy and fertiliser.

To get started, residents will receive the following between 25th January and 26th February 2021:

  • a black 23 litre outdoor caddy
  • a silver 5 litre indoor caddy
  • one roll of 50 green plastic indoor caddy liners
  • service leaflet that includes collection schedule

Households should open their caddies as soon as they receive them as there is important information inside, such as how to use the service and a new waste collection schedule.
