Waste not, want not: How to reduce food waste in your home 

Food waste in the UK is a growing problem, with a large majority being produced by us in our homes. 

We often buy more food than we need, which means a lot of it goes to waste. To help combat this waste issue we explain what food waste is, why it’s a problem and how you can help to prevent it. We also explain how your local council might handle food waste once it has been collected at kerbside.
