Food Waste Recycling

Food waste recycling allows residents to place food waste into one container for recycling.


Collections:  Weekly


Please ensure your caddy is placed on the kerbside (or in your communal bin area) by 7.00am on your collection day.

Don’t forget to place any waste fruit from fruit trees in your food waste containers for collection where possible.


If there is too much to fit in your food waste caddy, you can fill your garden waste bag and place out on your black bag collection day only. 


Please clearly label the bag as 'windfall fruit'.
