Help us to waste less this winter
Published: 9 November 2017
Did you know that Every year Redbridge residents produce around 100, 000 tonnes of waste? That’s almost 1 tonne per household. By taking simple steps to reduce, reuse and recycle your waste you can help save money and make a difference to your environment.
Residents can also be smart shoppers and avoid wasting food, items and the money they cost by planning purchases and making a list before they buy.
Plan your meals and your portions to ensure you cook just the right amount for family and friends. Use your freezer to the max and make delicious meals from leftovers. Tools, recipes and many useful tips can be found at the brilliant www.lovefoodhatewaste.com
