Food waste

Your left-over food, raw or cooked. For example banana peel, eggshell, corn-cob, seafood shell, coffee grounds, tea bags and household paper.

No thanks to moist tobacco (snus), chewing gum, plants, cat litter, and flower soil.

Food waste is an important resource that can be transformed into biogas - an environmentally friendly and proprietary fuel - used for our corporate cars and public transportation in Lund.


  • Throw your left-over food, raw or cooked, into a food waste bag.
  • You can pick up new empty food waste bags at our waste station.
  • Fold-down the edge along the dashed line on the waste bag – that way you can never overfill the bag, which makes it hard to carry out.
  • Put some used household paper in the bottom of the waste bag – it helps keep the bag dry.
