Using your new food waste containers

We will provide you with:

  • one roll of food waste liners
  • one silver, 7 litre kitchen bin
  • an instructional leaflet about the new service

These will be delivered to your property around a week before your food waste recycling collections will start. Our engagement teams will visit your property to speak to you about how to use the new service.

How to use the bins

  1. Line your kitchen bin with a food waste liner, for example, and then put your food in it.
  2. Take your filled food waste liners (that are securely tied) to your nearest neighbourhood food waste bin.
  3. If you experience any issues with the neighbourhood food waste bins either email the Recycling Team at [email protected] or use Report It.

If your kitchen food waste recycling bin breaks, please request a new one.
