The council provides free caddy liners to line your silver caddy. When you are near the end of your roll, tie a liner to the handle of your green caddy and the crew will leave a new roll.

You can use carrier bags to line your silver caddy. When it is full, tie the bag and put it in your outside green caddy. Use the handle lock to help stop pests.

Remember - your food waste is collected weekly.

What happens to the food waste you recycle?

  • Your food waste is recycled through a process called anaerobic digestion
  • As your food waste is processed it produces a gas which is converted into heating and electricity
  • At the end of the process, the resulting compost is used as fertiliser on local farms
