Dairy (cheese, cream, ice cream, milk, yoghurt)

Find out how to reduce, reuse and compost dairy products.

Reduce and reuse

For food waste reduction tips and ideas for meals made from leftovers, see our Food Savvy website. Also Love Food, Hate Waste website is a great source of inspiration for this too.

Home compost

No dairy food products can be put in a standard home compost bin. Only specialist composting systems such as the HotBin or Bokashi kitchen digester can deal with all food waste. To see these and a whole range of other composting systems at subsidised prices on Suffolk Get Composting.

For advice on other types of food waste, see the "Food waste and leftovers" entry
