Weekly food waste recycling

Leave your green food bin out for collection in a visible place at the edge of your property by 6.30am on collection day. Please note we work as normal on bank holiday Mondays and Good Friday. Christmas and New Year's weeks collections may vary and will be notified here nearer the time.

You can use your silver kitchen caddy to contain your food waste indoors. You can line it with plastic bags or liners.

Please recycle:

  • All of your food waste, cooked or uncooked, such as meat, fish, vegetables, bones, plate scrapings

Please don't recycle:

  • Bulk liquids like large amounts of milk or soup. This is because it's difficult and messy for our staff to handle
  • Packaging. You can line your bin or caddy with a plastic bag or liner. But do not recycle any other packaging.
