Bread, cakes and pastries

Uneaten bread, cakes and pastries go in your food and garden bin.

You can also reduce your food waste by freezing these items, find out more by visiting Buy Keep Eat Repeat.

Using a kitchen food caddy? Only use compostable food bags with the seedling logo and code EN13432. Do not use paper, plastic or biodegradable bags.

Compostable food bags are available from some councils and most supermarkets.

Food waste can’t be recycled at any of our Recycling Centres. This is because they are not licensed to accept food waste.
