How to use your food caddy

  • Line your kitchen caddy to make it easier to transfer to the external food bin.
  • Plastic bags can also be used to line your caddy - we encourage reuse, such as those used for bread.
  • Put all your leftover, mouldy or out-of-date food in your kitchen caddy. No packaging please.
  • When your caddy is full, tie the liner and put it in your communal food waste bin.
