Line your kitchen caddy with biodegradable liners or newspaper.
Put all your leftover, mouldy or out-of-date food in your kitchen caddy.
When your caddy is full, tie the liner, or wrap your waste in newspaper, and put it in your outside food waste bin.
Keep the lid of your food bin locked to keep out foxes and other pests.
We will collect your food waste every week on your collection day.
Leave your food waste bin at the edge of your property on, or by, the pavement before 6am on your collection day.
When you run out of biodegradable liners for your kitchen caddy, you can buy more at the supermarket or line your caddy with newspaper.
Use your food waste bin for:
leftovers, uneaten food and plate scrapings
dairy products and eggs
bread, cakes and pastries
raw and cooked meat and fish, including bones
tea bags and coffee grounds
raw and cooked vegetables, mouldy fruit, peelings

biodegradable liners and newspaper.
We cannot collect your food waste bin if it contains:
packaging e.g. food and drink cartons
liquids e.g. milk, oil, liquid fat

Your food waste bin should only be used for food waste. If your food waste bin contains non-compostable items or garden waste we will not be able to collect it.
If you keep using your food waste bin incorrectly, we may take it away.
