Waste and recycling collections

Food waste and caddies

  • All food waste must be at the kerbside by 6:30am on your collection day
  • Although you may be used to seeing the crews at the same time each week, there is no set time for collections to take place; only the day of the week is set. Please do not report missed collections until the morning after the specified collection day

Collection schedule

We collect food waste every week, on your collection day.

Caddy liners

We do not supply liners for food caddies. Most supermarkets and household shops sell them.

How to use your food caddies

Outdoor food waste bin

Keep your larger food bin outside. You can lock it by moving the handle forward to stop pests and spillage. This is the food bin you leave at the kerbside on collection days. 

Indoor food waste caddy

When it is full, transfer the waste into the larger food bin. Please do not leave this caddy at the kerbside on collection days.

At the current time it isn't possible to provide a food waste collection service from flats.

We are keen, through our contractor Veolia, to collect food waste from as many properties as possible, and we are investigating whether food waste collections can be introduced to those properties.

We will contact you if it is possible to begin collecting food waste from your flats.
