Food waste recycling

Food waste is collected weekly on your scheduled collection day. You can line your food waste bin with newspaper or a compostable bag. This will help prevent smells and stops food waste sticking to the inside of your bin. Please do not use plastic bags to line your bins. 

Yes please

  • cooked and raw food
  • meat and fish bones
  • vegetables, peelings and shells
  • dairy products
  • tea bags and coffee grounds
  • newspaper (to wrap food)
  • compostable liners

No thanks

  • pet litter/faeces
  • any packaging
  • plastic bags
  • nappies
  • tissue/kitchen roll
  • liquids
  • other general waste 

Your food waste bin will not be emptied if it contains any of the unwanted items above.

We do not provide the compostable liners.

If you need a new or replacement outdoor food waste bin, you can order a new one for free.
