Food waste collections

Starting from Monday 30 September 2019 food waste will be collected every week.

Delivering your food caddies

During September, we'll supply you with a 23 litre, lockable food waste bin. You may prefer to keep this outside.

We'll also deliver a 5 litre 'kitchen caddy' that you can keep indoors. You can fill this and then empty it into the larger food waste bin as and when you desire.

What happens to food waste?

Food waste will be composted and converted into soil improver, which is used to improve growing conditions.

Garden waste bins

We will also be delivering black bins in September to those who've registered for the opt-in garden waste service.
