Christmas is often a time of excess waste, particularly when it comes to food. Throwing away good food costs the average Scottish household £460 per year so visit www.lovefoodhatewaste.com (external link) for tips on saving money, preventing waste and using up Christmas leftovers.
For unavoidable food waste such as turkey bones, fruit and vegetable peelings, tea bags and coffee grinds, Inverness residents are reminded to make maximum use of their food waste collection service.
