What IS this food everyone is reportedly wasting?

Following on from the 'let's waste less food' thread ( - what food do you actually 'waste'?

Where I live food waste is collected weekly by the council for making into compost for the city parks - each household has a lidded bucket into which they put the waste.
My bucket regularly contains coffee grounds, vegetable peelings, nut shells, olive seeds and squeezed out citrus fruit. There will be an occasional cheese rind or apple core - but that's about it.

What goes into your (hypothetical if you don't have one) bucket?
