What to do with food waste? This is one question that has circled around the minds of many homeowners who are doing their damndest to be as eco-friendly as possible. How to be green, when you constantly have something that has to go to the waste disposal heap? The answer is not actually that difficult. There are many ways to deal with your food waste without adding to the landfills and if you apply any of the methods described below, then you will manage to handle the waste clearance of your food scraps without adding to the environmental pollution and still keep the method eco-friendly.
#1 – Compost
If you are doing any gardening, then you should be familiar with the concept of compost. You can use the food waste and (as long as it does not have any meat in it) add it to your compost heap. Dry it out and you’ll have a great fertiliser for your garden and your plants. The soil will be very thankful and ready for anything you decide to plant there.
#2 – Feed Animals
If you have animals such as hens or goats, or you know a farm that does, then you can take your food scraps there and do the rubbish disposal at their feeders. Feed the animals and everyone will be happy – they will be nicely fed and grateful, and you will have no more junk clearance troubles to deal with. Always be mindful of what you are feeding to the animals, of course, but all organic food should do the trick.
#3 – Give Away
You don’t have to use your own compost heap, or give your own animals food, of course. If you have neither, then look for someone who has. Seal up the food waste and take it to your neighbour, to a friend who keeps a garden and has a compost pile, or to a local farmer who will appreciate the food scraps for their own compost or for the animals.
#4 – Send to Recycling Centre
And then you have the typical waste disposal method when you want good recycling done. Call your local clearance company, have them do the rubbish collection and they will handle the waste recycling of the food waste in a professional manner, just as you would if you had the ready option. This is a trustworthy method, but it costs money, or at least money for petrol, if you take it upon yourself to take the waste to the centre yourself.
#5 – Freeze for Broth
And there is also a way to deal with food scraps in your own home. Any organic food that has no meat on it can be sealed in a plastic bag and then placed in the freezer. What for? Well, once winter hits your windows and you see the nasty frost outside, you can take it out and put it in a nice pot. Heat it up, add water, and wait for the water to boil and the broth to start cooking. Check for recipes to see what kind of spices you can add and you can enjoy a nice warm broth to keep you healthy and well fed.
With these methods you can do all the food waste recycling you want and always have an eco-friendly way of dealing with it. No need to create pollution when you have all these choices. Just pick the one that benefits you the most or is the easiest for you and stick to it till you get tired of it. It’s the right way to go.
