Weekly food waste recycling

Leave your bins out in a clearly visible place at the edge of your property by 6.30am on collection day. we work as normal on bank holiday Mondays and Good Friday. What if a collection is missed?

For all food waste, cooked or uncooked, such as meat, fish, vegetables, bones, plate scrapings. NO BULK LIQUIDS PLEASE such as soup or milk. NO PACKAGING.

You can line your food caddy with plastic bags if you like. Why is it OK to put plastic bags in food waste but not in the green recycling bin?

DON'T put your food in your big, green mixed recycling bin. It can't be separated from the other stuff, and ruins the rest of the recycling. Right thing, right bin.

(Please note that we supply a kitchen caddy to new properties but are unable to supply them generally. Both kitchen caddies and liners are widely available online).
