          How to use the bread collection bin

          • Throw your old bread in the bin. Remove any any bags or wrappings.
          • Throw only bread into the bread collection bin.

          If plastic or other leftovers are thrown in the bread collection bin, they cannot be turned into biogas and everything will be disposed of as regular waste.

          Prevent nuisance from rats and seagulls

          Do not throw any bread on the street and do not feed the birds. Extra food often is left standing. This attracts rats and seagulls.
