Hull City Council is giving away 2,400 bags of compost to thank residents for using their brown bins to recycle food and garden waste.
As part of the “food waste in the right place” campaign, which started in 2019, black bins across Hull were fitted with tags reminding people that all cooked and uncooked food waste should be put in the brown bin.
Since the initiative was introduced, there has been a 15 per cent increase in the amount of garden and food waste collected from residents.
To say thank you, the council will be giving away compost produced from the waste at a drive-through / walk-in event later this month.
