An extra 1,000 homes in Broadland have started to get their food waste collected this month.
Broadland District Council was the first local authority in Norfolk to carry out separate food waste collections in 2008, which started as a six-month, government-funded trial serving around 6,000 homes.
Since then, more than 10,000 tonnes of food waste has been collected and the service is offered to 25,000 homes- almost half of all households in Broadland.
The 1,000 homes have already received their two new food waste caddies which have been funded by Norfolk County Council- a small caddy for their kitchen and a larger one to be left out for collection.
A leaflet explaining the food recycling process was also delivered to the households.
The homes are spread across the district, filling in areas where the food waste service is already in operation.
