Will using my food waste caddy attract unwanted pests?

There are some simple steps you can take to avoid unwanted pests:

  • empty your kitchen caddy into your outside food waste bin regularly and make sure the lid is locked using the handle – it keeps smells in and means vermin cannot get to your food
  • keep food covered and keep your kitchen caddy lid shut at all times to prevent flies from getting to your food waste where they could lay eggs
  • place your food waste out for collection each week.
