You can now use plastic bags and liners in your food waste caddy

You can now line your food waste caddy with plastic bags or liners, which makes it easier, cheaper and cleaner to recycle your food waste.

You can use anything from old shopping bags to bread or salad bags – and you can continue to use newspaper or leftover compostable liners. Please don’t include black bin bags or other food packaging. If you’ve got smelly food you don’t want hanging around inside, simply tie it up in a plastic bag and put it straight in your outside food waste bin.

Food waste is collected from your outside food waste bin every week on the same day as your rubbish or recycling.
