Communal food waste container

The food waste container is next to existing recycling facilities and is for food waste only.

The container will be emptied on a weekly basis.

You can wrap your food waste in newspaper or use a caddy liner; if you have a kitchen caddy. Please do not use plastic carrier bags to wrap your food waste in. Then simply take your food waste down to your communal food waste container.

You can purchase kitchen caddies and caddy liners from or by phoning 0844 571 4444.

Simply put food waste in your caddy and, when full, take it down to the food waste container.
