Due to supply issues we may have a delay for delivery of large food caddys
Place your food waste into the food bags provided by the council or any plastic bag. To obtain replacement food caddy bags, please tie a food bag to the handle of the kerbside caddy before putting it out for collection and the crew will leave a roll of bags.
You can put the following items in your inside food caddy, in a liner. When full, transfer into your kerbside caddy:
- Food leftovers
- Fruit & vegetables
- Tea bags
- Dairy products
- Rice, pasta & beans
- Meat & bones
- Bread cakes & pastries
Please do not put the following items into your inside food caddy; they are not recyclable:
- Oils & liquid fats
- Food still in packages
Recycling all your food waste helps to stop harmful greenhouse gases from being released into the environment, it also generates gas to heat your home. Recycled food waste is also turned into fertiliser which can be used by local farmers.
When you recycle your food waste, your brown household waste bin will be cleaner and less full.
