Food wasteFood waste

All types of food waste, cooked or uncooked, can be recycled via the kerbside collection service weekly, just collect it in the small brown caddy, using the compostable liner bags provided by the Council and then transfer the bags to the large brown caddy for collection.

Please ensure remove all packaging from food waste.

  • If you do not have a food caddy telephone 01422 288002;
  • To order more liners leave a note on your large caddy on collection day.
