It’s never too late to get the bug for recycling of food

SIR, — It has taken a while, but after a few false starts our family has adapted to using the recycling food caddy.

I am a keen environmentalist but when I first heard we needed to use the brown bin for food I was a bit concerned about the mess and the smell of recycled food scrapings.

Isn’t it amazing how quickly you can get used to change.

I am now delighted to know we are setting a great example to our children to encourage them to separate household waste.

More than 20 years ago I lived in a European country where recycling was part and parcel of family life.

We might be a couple of decades late, but it is better late than never.

Your etc,
