"But it's not only your wallet that will benefit from wasting less food; there are serious environmental implications. When we waste food, we also waste the energy, water and packaging involved in producing, transporting and storing the food. What's more, food that gets sent to landfill contributes to climate change as it creates methane gas when it rots down."
Torridge District Council will shortly be introducing food waste collections to help those residents who do not already recycle their leftovers, which will also help reduce landfill and have a positive effect on our environment.
