Letters: Prevent food scraps going to landfill by signing up to ‘share’ app


Dear editor,

We all need to do our bit to prevent so much organic waste from ending up in landfill.

Bedford Borough Council does not currently have the facilities to recycle kitchen waste, so schemes such as ShareWaste are important.

You can find out more and download the app here for from the App Store.

ShareWaste helps you find someone in your neighbourhood who’s willing to accept veg peelings, coffee grounds and other organic waste, and compost it, or feed it to their worms or animals.

Do something great for the environment and your garden, and start sharing!

Sarah Smith
