Food scraps collections

Each residential home within the collection area will receive:

  • a food scraps collection bin (23-litre) - this bin is collected weekly from the kerbside on your collection day
  • a kitchen caddy -  a smaller bin to collect food scraps in the kitchen before transferring them to the main food scraps bin outside
  • a starter set of compostable bin liners - these fit into your kitchen caddy and help keep your caddy clean and reduce smells
  • an information brochure on how to use the food scraps collection service.
