Using a car to collect
Do I need a car?
No! A car is not mandatory but it might be useful for larger collections. However, for most collections, especially those within cities, public transport is a great asset for travelling in a more sustainable way.
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 don’t reimburse any gas or parking costs - we’d also like to encourage you to walk, cycle, or take public transport like the vast majority of Food Waste Heroes, wherever possible.
