Organic Waste
Turning your waste into compost and biofuel

The food waste regulations obligate householders and businesses to segregate their waste so that food waste is kept separate from other waste. In conjunction with the Landfill Directive it also prevents this waste from being sent to landfill. KeyGreen can help you to do this through our organic waste collection service. We provide a range of organic waste bins suitable for both households, apartments and commercial premises. KeyGreen also provides a handy 5-litre caddy you can use to store food waste before transferring it to your own larger compost bin or communal bin.

Organic Waste

By using your brown bin you can help the environment and better manage and protect our environment from pollution. Segregating your kitchen and garden waste into your brown bin allows it to be reused and turned into compost. A process called anaerobic digestion can be used to treat your compost waste to produce a gas-like fuel used in heating and vehicles. For example, KeyGreen is installing a biogas unit to heat our offices which will be heated solely from biomethane from the organic waste process. We are also investing in vehicles for our fleet that will run on biofuel also produced from the anaerobic digestion process.

Your brown bin is an organic waste bin designed to minimise the amount of waste disposed of in your black general waste bin. Using a brown bin can reduce the amount of waste in your black bin by up to 30%.

What can I put in my brown bin?

Your brown waste bin is used for organic (food and garden) waste only. The following items are accepted in your brown bin:

Fruit and vegetables | Raw and cooked meat and fish | Eggshells | Dairy products | Bread | Garden waste (grass, twigs, leaves, etc.) | Coffee grounds and tea bags | Packaged foods (removed from packaging) | Kitchen roll and napkins.

The following items are NOT acceptable in your brown bin:

Plastics | Metals | Glass | Porcelain or tile | Tinfoil | Sweets and crisps wrappers | Juice cartons of any kind | Glossy paper or magazines | Coal | Rock | Gravel | Soil | Stones | Clay | Human or animal litter | Light bulbs | Batteries | Electrical goods | Shoes and clothing.

NOTE: Do not put plastic bags in your brown bin, if you are concerned about your brown bin smelling you can purchase biodegradable bags from KeyGreen.
