Around 40% of rubbish put out for collection in Portsmouth is food waste.
We want to trial food waste collections in certain areas of the city to reduce the amount of waste sent for incineration, and to help make Portsmouth a greener city.
We will notify residents chosen to take part in the trial by post. They will then receive two food waste caddies and an information leaflet explaining what to do. If your road isn't included you may still get to take part in the future as if the trial is successful we will roll it out across the city.
The food waste is collected by a different crew on the same day as the rubbish collections and is sent for anaerobic digestion.
