Kitchen waste can be regarded as any item of food, food packaging material
or soiled kitchen cloths which are not suitable for further use.
Kitchen bins – these should be conveniently sited, fitted with lids and emptied
frequently. A bin liner does not replace regular cleaning and disinfecting.
Outside bin store – full, closed bin liners should be placed into external bins
with lids. The bin store must be sited away from food storage areas and kept
clean and free of pests.
Recycling – anything which can be recycled should be washed and recycled.
Whilst it is awaiting recycling it must be stored away from food storage areas.
Compost Heaps food
waste should not be put on a compost heap as it may
attract pests. If a compost heap is kept it should be for garden waste only and
should be checked weekly as part of pest control monitoring.
