Free food waste collection service for Waltham Forest schools

After last year's successful food waste collection trial, Waltham Forest Council is now opening up the free service to all schools in the Borough.

Any cooked or uncooked food, including plate scrapings, fruit and veg peelings, bones and leftover kitchen waste, can now be collected separately and recycled into compost. By joining the service your school could save money by throwing away less food as general waste, and prevent food ending up in landfill.
