You can put any raw or cooked food in your caddy. You can even scrape uneaten food straight into your caddy.

  • Meat and fish - raw and cooked including bones
  • All dairy products such as eggs and cheese
  • Vegetables and fruit - raw and cooked
  • Bread, cakes and pastries
  • Rice, pasta and beans
  • Uneaten food from your plates and dishes
  • Tea bags and coffee grounds
  • Waste cat and dog food from a domestic property. Anything from a commercial premise will be agreed on a case by case basis.

No Thanks!  Please do not put any of these materials in your food waste caddy.

  • Packaging of any sort
  • Plastic bags
  • Liquids
  • Oil or liquid fat

Please remember - If you already compost at home please keep composting your uncooked vegetable and fruit peelings in your bin or heap.


How can I recycle my food waste?

To recycle your food waste all you need is:

  • A large green 23 ltr food waste bin 
  • A silver 5 ltr food waste caddy 
  • An annual supply of bags to line the caddy

Step 1

Get the right equipment – you will need a kitchen caddy, caddy bags
and a kerbside bin.

Step 2

Line your Kitchen Caddy with the bag







Step 3

Place any food waste into the caddy, taking care to exclude any packaging.


Step 4

When your kitchen caddy is full, empty into your kerbside bin and put out for collection once a
week so it can be recycled.
