Your collection

Check your property’s collection day

Houses and Flats

  • You will have two food waste containers, a seven litre kitchen caddy and a larger food waste bin to put out for collection.
  • Food waste is collected every week.
  • We recommend you line your kitchen caddy with compostable liners (available to buy in supermarkets) or old newspaper. When your caddy is nearly full, tie the top of your liner (or fold over your newspaper) and put it in your outdoor food waste bin ready for collection.

Unfortunately we’re not able to collect food waste from flats above shops.
