Weekly food waste collections


Weekly food waste collections

This is a weekly service.

Leave your bins 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.

Put your food out in your green food bin. You can lock it by pushing the handle forward. You can line it with plastic bags or liners.

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, whether cooked or uncooked. This includes meat, fish, vegetables, bones, plate scrapings.

Please don't recycle:

  • Bulk liquids such as large amounts of soup, oil or milk. Why not? Simply because it's difficult and unpleasant for our staff to handle.
  • Packaging - while it's OK to line your bin or caddy with plastic bags or liners, please don't put any more packaging in your food waste bin. Plastic and cardboard packaging can be recycled in your black recycling bin.
