Around 40% of waste that Peterborough residents used
to put in their black bins is food waste, for example vegetable
peelings and half-eaten meals. Hungry Harry make recycling your
food waste as easy as your recycling of plastic
bottles, food and drink cans, aerosols, drink cartons, mixed glass,
mixed paper and card and will be collected weekly.
The service was introduced to increase the amount of waste
recycled across the city and saves the city’s tax payers
hundreds of thousands of pounds per year.
Instead of paying for food waste to be buried in landfill sites,
at great expense, it is collected and sent away to be turned
into fertiliser; the processed waste also helps to generate
Hungry Harry bin collections
Your Hungry Harry bin is collected every week on
the same day as your regular bin collection, you can
find out your bin collection date using the bin collection

bin you can contact Enterprise Peterborough
