How can I line my bin/caddy?

Residents should choose whatever method works best for them. All liners/bags are removed at the processing facility before the food waste is treated and converted into energy via an energy from waste plant.

You can line your bin/caddy with any of the following:

  • bags that food has come in, e.g. bread bags, salad bags, cereal bags large crisp bags etc
  • carrier bags (not ‘bags for life’)
  • thin plastic bags, e.g. fridge and freezer storage bags that are not longer fit for use
  • plastic bags bought on a roll, e.g. pedal bin liners (although reusing an existing bag is best)
  • compostable bags
  • newspaper

Please do not use:

  • black bin liners
  • rubble sacks
  • hard plastic packaging (punnets trays etc)
