How can we eat so much food at Christmas and yet waste so much at the same time?
Christmas for many is a period of indulgence where numerous television adverts make us all salivate at the sight of every Christmas nibble and our subconscious makes us think we need every single one available on Christmas day.
This pattern is repeated in households across the UK and every year Britons throw away waste equivalent of 2 million turkeys, 5 million Christmas puddings and a massive 74 million mince pies.
Whilst it’s important to try and reduce food waste during the festive period, if you do however end up with leftovers this year then HOTBIN would like a Christmas feast too!

Understanding "Wet Waste".
Bulking agent and shredded paper need to be added to the HOTBIN with all food waste, helping to aerate and absorb the extra moisture from the waste.
