From Monday 2 November, together with our new Partner, Urbaser, we will be providing households with a weekly separate food waste collection.

We know that about 30% of residents' refuse bin is made up of food waste and is disposed of. Introducing separate food waste collection will allow us to make use of your food waste, turning it into energy and fertilizer.

Your new green 23 litre kerbside food caddy will be delivered to you by mid-September.

If you haven't received your caddy by Friday 18 September, please Contact us. We ask you not to contact us before then as we work through our delivery schedule.

Please keep your caddy safe until the new service starts from 2 November.

How often will the food waste caddy be collected?

The new food waste collection service is a weekly collection. Please present your food caddy on your usual collection day by 6.30am.

What goes in the food caddy?

You can use you caddy to for all raw and cooked food waste, including pet food, bones and tea bags.
