Want to keep your fruit, vegetable, garden and food waste (VGF) separate without any effort? Then use a handy food waste bin with compostable bags on your kitchen counter. This makes it easy to dispose of food waste and prevents it from ending up in the regular rubbish.

Dispose of GFT free of charge  

Good news! You can dispose of the full compostable bags for free in your neighbourhood GFT container with the environment card. Do you have a VGF container at home? The compostable bags keep it nice and clean. Plastic does not belong with VGF waste. So look carefully at the logo on the compostable bag. That way you can be sure you are using the right bag.

From kitchen to compost 

Did you know that if you keep kitchen and garden waste separated from residual waste, it is recycled into compost and biogas (green gas)? Compost is good for the garden and the land, while green gas is an environmentally friendly alternative to natural gas. When GFT ends up with the residual waste, it is burnt and not recycled. We then lose that VGF waste forever.  In this way, you are helping to create a cleaner world.

Wondering what can and can't go with kitchen and garden waste? For your convenience, we have the separation rules listed.
