A number of eye-catching buses that feature food waste characters and interesting facts will be making their way through Worcestershire from April 27 for 12 weeks.

Passengers lucky enough to catch one of the buses will be able to read through various recipes for using up leftovers as part of Worcestershire County Council's Love Food Hate Waste campaign.

The campaign aims to inform residents about how they can save money and help the environment by reducing the amount of food they throw away.  

Cllr Anthony Blagg, Worcestershire County Council Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Environment, said: "The Love Food Hate Waste campaign is all about encouraging residents to make simple changes to help them save money and help reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill.

"This is not only good for the environment, but also helps the council save money from disposal charges. By making small changes like planning meals in advance, making shopping lists and using leftovers to make new meals, the average family could save up to £60 a month."
