Frequently Asked Questions

Where does my food waste go?

Food waste in Peterborough is made into nutrient rich compost which is used by local farmers and gardeners.

How do I recycle used cooking oil?

Oil should be left to cool before being poured into a plastic bottle not bigger than 1 litre in size. You can then place this bottle in your outdoor food waste bin.
