Potters Bar residents are being urged to snap up free food waste collection equipment to ensure they recycle.

Hertsmere Council is supporting Waste Aware’s campaign to encourage residents to recycle all their food waste.

A council spokeswoman said: “Over a third of food waste ends up in the black bins across Hertfordshire, even though it can all be recycled in the green bin.

“Not only will you be helping to save Hertfordshire £2.5million a year if all food waste was recycled, you’ll also be reducing harmful greenhouse gases. A good result for everyone.”

Hertsmere Council’s recycling officer, Jenna Bates, said: “This campaign is a great way to let residents know that a simple change – such as recycling all food waste – can make such a big difference.

“In Hertsmere we have kitchen caddies, which you can keep in your kitchen to store food waste before transferring the contents to your green bin.

“Caddies are available free of charge at locations across the borough.”

In Potters Bar the caddies can be collected from The Wyllyotts Centre in Darkes Lane, between 9.30am and 2pm on Thursdays.

It’s a rare opportunity to get a flight in an air ambulance without the downside of being seriously ill – so I didn’t need asking twice to take up the offer.
