Stockists of Food Waste Caddy Liners

Residents who choose to recycle their food waste are able to purchase compostable caddy liners from various small outlets thanks to a new partnership between Colchester Borough Council and local businesses and organisations.

The purpose of this retail network is to make the compostable food waste liners available to households across the Borough at a competitive price in order to make the liners affordable, whilst supporting local businesses. Stockists agree to sell the liners at a competitive price from £1.00 per roll.

Please note that Colchester Borough Council delivers liners to each stockist as orders come through but is not responsible for the general upkeep of stock in any of the stores involved in the Retail Network.
