Food waste

Eatable food should primarily end up in the stomach. But, what you can not eat, you should put in the brown food waste bag. For example. banana peel, eggshell, corn cob, shrimp shell, coffee filter, and tea bag.

Remember! This is not food waste but should be sorted as residual waste: tobacco (snus), chewing gum, potted plants, soil, and ice cream sticks.

Your recycled food waste turns into biofertilizers and biogas. Biogas is a fuel used for public transport in Lund and our company cars.


  • You can pick up new empty food waste bags at the waste station.
  • Fold-down the edge along the dashed line on the food waste bag – that way you can never overfill the bag.
  • Put some used household paper in the bottom of the food waste bag – it helps keep the bag dry.
