We love our leftovers in South Derbyshire and together with our Waste less, Save more partner Sainsbury’s, we want to help residents to get the most out of their food, especially when eating out.

Research shows that three quarters of you would like a ‘doggy bag’ option available to take home uneaten food for later, but half of you are too shy to ask for one. That is where SnapBox comes in. We are supplying special containers, available to food outlets and diners, to make it easier to take away and re-use leftover cooked food from meals out.

Residents and restaurants are invited to join the waste revolution. If you would like to get involved, email As well as helping households save money, it will reduce the amount thrown away by restaurants.

Eateries in South Derbyshire that are participating in the scheme are detailed below.
