The Independent on Sunday's top 10 tips to help you cut that food-waste mountain rotting in your bin:

The Independent on Sunday's top 10 tips to help you cut that food-waste mountain rotting in your bin:

1. Buy less if you don't think you can eat it: smaller joints, loose vegetables rather than pre-packed bags that are too big – and try not to fall for quite so many buy-one-get-one-free offers.

2. Use your imagination with leftovers: that half a roast-chicken would make a perfect pie, sandwich filling or form the basis for a salad.

3. Don't let vegetables rot in the bottom of the fridge: even older vegetables make decent soups, casseroles or curries.

4. Remember to cancel that vegetable box if you're going to be dining out a lot that week.

5. Don't over-order in restaurants; if you do, make like an American and ask for a doggy bag.

6. Use common sense rather than use-by dates when deciding what to throw away.

7. Become friends with your freezer: make your own frozen ready-meals with last night's leftovers or any food that you have overbought.

8. Whiz up older fruit into a smoothie or bake it in a pudding.

9. Look out for the new plastic bags that will give your vegetables a longer lease of life in your fridge.

10. Try and shop more frequently so that you buy what you need, rather than rely on one major shopping trip.
