Are you living in the Endcliffe or Ranmoor apartments? You may have noticed an extra caddy in your kitchen and we’re here to tell you what it’s all about…
ReFood – we want to recycle your food
Yes really – not compost, but recycle. When you put your food waste in a ReFood bin Premier Waste will collect it and send it for anaerobic digestion, so that it can be used to produce fertiliser and electricity in Doncaster.
I don’t have a ReFood caddy. How do I sign up?
If you are living in a new build apartment at the Endcliffe or Ranmoor residences, then it is more than likely that you already have a ReFood caddy in your kitchen. If you are living somewhere else in University accommodation then you may not be enrolled in the scheme automatically.
If you want to join the scheme, just email Andy at A.Woffindin@sheffield.ac.uk to opt into the ReFood project.
You will be provided with a table-top compost caddy, which you will then be responsible for until your residence contract ends. Just remember, once you have a composting caddy then you are responsible for it and we'll need it back in good condition (clean and useable) at the end of your contract.
What do I do with my caddy once it's full?
We have a number of ReFood bins located around the residences. Just take a look at the ReFood Bin Sites Map to find your nearest one. There'll be a ReFood poster at each bin location, so you can't miss them.
Remember: if you put it in a general waste (grey lid) or mixed recycling (aqua lid) bin it won't be recycled by ReFood, so make sure you get the right one.
