Collecting food in reusable containers

πŸ“£ Due to an upcoming change in the law, where single-use plastics will be banned, coming into place at the end of 2023, you might start to notice that the site you collect from donates their food in reusable containers that they need back.

Here are some guidelines you must follow in order to complete a successful collection involving reusable containers within our food safety requirements: 

  • ⚠️ You can only collect food in reusable containers when the container belongs to the business (i.e. please do not use your own containers from home).
  • πŸ₯ In the description of your listing, please specify that requesters need to bring their own containers.
  • πŸ‘ After washing your hands, using clean utensils and on a clean surface in your kitchen, transfer the desired amount of food from the business' container into the requester's container.
  • πŸ’« The site will have a thorough cleaning process, but please remember to wash the containers before returning them to the site.
