You will have two food caddies:

  • a small caddy (kitchen caddy) to keep in your kitchen – line your kitchen caddy with the small food waste bags provided by the Council. Once full this should be emptied into the food waste bin (large caddy).
  • a large caddy (food waste bin) to store outside – the food waste bin should be lined with the larger food waste bags provided by the Council to help keep it clean. The bin is lockable to prevent it being opened by animals.

Use your kitchen caddy to collect your food waste in the kitchen and simply empty its contents into the food waste bin, which is typically stored outside ready for collection.

Your food waste will be collected on your weekly recycling and waste collection day.

You can request a food waste bin or caddy online.
