Food waste

Edible food, of course, belongs in the stomach. The rest should be sorted into the brown food waste bag to be transformed into biogas and biofertilizer.

YES: Fruit- and potato peels, fish- and seafood scraps, meat bones, coffee filters, and tea bags.
NO: Plastic bags, cat litter, dog poop bags, chewing gum, potted plants, soil, popsicle sticks, cigarettes, and snus. Remember, plastic doesn't belong in food waste!

  • To avoid overflow, fold down the edge along the line on your food waste bag.
  • To keep the bag dry, place a piece of kitchen paper at the bottom.
  • You can find new food waste bags at your waste station or in the bulky waste station.
