You get points for trying but you'll really get the greatest benefits if you succeed...  

We personally don't use the compostable food waste bags but you can do this (compostable = seedling logo = BS EN 13432) available in the shops or online.

This also really helps because you see what you are wasting and then can tweak your buying, storage and food management to reduce your waste and save money.

The less you have to deal with the easier it is.

LBH has good downloadable info that can be laminated and stuck on the inside (or outside) of a cupboard door as a ready-reference then you won't have to tear your hair out that someone has just noticed that you are supposed to be recycling after ignoring it for so long.  LBE is not so good but...

LBE has this which you can send to a questioning flatmate with a smartphone to read on the tube:
www.recyclemystuff.org.uk

There are small differences between the collections of the two boroughs but generally the same things can be recycled.

Sounds like you should all sign up for The Rubbish Diet:

It makes a great change to not have to walk through your home with a dripping black sack.  Trying to fit bags this shape /\ into a bin this shape \/ doesn't work that well.
