The recycle now campaign and Suffolk councils are urging food lovers across the area to remember to compost as they indulge in the fruits of the season.
Lynne Gunn, of the recycle now compost at home campaign, said: “As summer fades into autumn, many of the nation's favourite fruits and vegetables are coming into season.
“When tucking into these autumnal treats, spare a thought for the environment and don't let the leftover material go to landfill.
“Invest in a compost bin and you'll be surprised how much free, nutritious fertiliser you can make just by recycling organic waste from your home and garden.”
Since the beginning of 2007, there have been 5,595 compost bins sold in Suffolk alone.

Ms Gunn said: “If you're not composting already, autumn is a great time to start and with bins available from as little as £8, it has never been easier.
“Not only can you recycle much of your food waste and other items, such as egg shells and scrunched up paper, you can also load up your bin with prunings, final grass cuttings and a limited amount of fallen leaves.”
Compost bins are available from £8 in your area. Check out the website www.recyclenow.com/compost or phone 0845 077 0757 for more details.
