Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council is supporting the current Love Food Hate Waste (LFHW) ‘Meaty’ issues campaign, which focuses on how meat need never be wasted.

The ‘Meaty’ issues campaign looks at reducing the amount of meat and fish food waste from homes.

Councillor Brian Hanvey, Chairman of the Council’s Environmental Services Committee, said: “Residents in the Council area are very good at recycling food waste that can’t be used as leftovers in their brown bins.

The Council is supporting this campaign as meat and fish are the most expensive components of food waste and we want to support ways in which our residents can save money. With over £2.1 billion of meat and fish being thrown away in the UK annually LFHW has hints, tips and recipes for minimising meat food waste.

For any food waste that can’t be used as leftovers, for example tea bags & coffee grounds, fruit & vegetable peelings, bones or mouldy food please place into your brown bin for food waste recycling. You can recycle your food waste all year round using your brown bin. If any resident needs a kitchen caddy or roll of liners these can be collected from Lagan Valley Island, Lisburn; Bradford Court Offices, Upper Galwally and its Household Recycling Centre at Drumlough, Hillsborough and The Cutts, Derriaghy.
