Please only use Council provide liners in your kitchen caddy.  Free liners are available from your collection crew, customer service centre, library or household waste site.

If you do not have a garden, you may receive a green food and a kitchen caddy.  Your kitchen caddy comes with compostable liner bags which you can use to collect food waste in before putting it in your outdoor caddy.

Request a food waste caddy using the below form - 



Your green food bin will be emptied every week. Where we can we will try and empty your food waste on the same day as your black refuse bin, but this won’t be possible for everybody. Please put your caddy out by 7am at the boundary of your property and return it as soon as you can after it’s been emptied. We empty bins between 7am and 4.30pm.
