ANNABELLE Fuller seems to have completely misunderstood my husband's letter (May 16).
Fenland Council supplies three bins and very full instructions on how your food waste can be collected each week. You can wrap it in newspaper or use the paper bags supplied by the council offices to place in either your brown bin which is also used for garden rubbish or your green bin for general non recyclable waste.
We are lucky enough to have a garden so the food waste does not smell when mixed with garden cuttings. When this is all composted down it is available free to farmers.
I won't go into the scientific reasons for this as it might be a little complex for Fuller of Sunbury....however people in March seem to be very adept at grasping this concept. If they have no garden or are unable to use the brown bin for compost, the food waste will still be collected every week.

I haven't lived in the area for long but am highly impressed with this European backed initiative, which is very efficiently carried out.
We are very impressed with the fact that the good people of Middlesex are so interested in our letters page. Let's hope we have been helpful to them.
