If you need additional recycling bins, reusable bags or an indoor kitchen caddy (including compostable liners) you can order them free of charge by using our online reporting form.
Simply tie an empty liner to the lid of your pink lidded bin or outdoor food bin and place out for collection as normal. We'll then deliver some more liners for free.
You can also collect two rolls of kitchen caddy liners, free of charge, from the Gateway centres and other locations across the city.

How do I recycle my food waste?
You can recycle all of your food waste using your free seven litre indoor kitchen caddy. Simply line your caddy with compostable liners and fill it with food waste.
When the liner starts to get full, tie it and pop it into your pink lidded bin or 23 litre outdoor food bin. If you prefer, you can also place your food waste directly into the bin.
