At present, around 43 per cent of the contents from the average green bin is food waste and a further 20 per cent is materials that could be recycled. By recycling our food waste and other materials properly, we can aim to reduce the amount we send to landfill by 50 per cent.

With more space in our general waste bins and to maximise the performance of our new food waste collections, green bin collections will move from every two weeks to every three weeks. This also offsets the cost of introducing the new service, as to add food waste collections without changing collections, our current service would cost Bracknell Forest taxpayers around £2.29 million over the next seven years.
