Using a car to collect

Do I need a car?

No! A car is not mandatory but it might be useful for larger collections. More important than having a car is to bring sturdy bags with you, please.

I want to use my car for my collections, where can I park it?

Large stores will most likely have a car park you can use. Small stores might not have one. Please check for parking before setting off for your first collection. 

Can I get reimbursed for gas and/or parking fees?

Unfortunately we donโ€™t reimburse any gas or parking costs - weโ€™d also like to encourage you to walk, cycle, or take public transport like the vast majority of Food Waste Heroes, wherever possible.
