Where does it go?
Locked in large external caddy
Order a new caddy
We are working in partnership with venues across the borough to provide food caddy liners at a discounted rate - from just 99p per roll.
We advise using liners for your food caddy to reduce mess and smell, however you do not have to use liners if you do not wish to purchase them. Your food waste can be put directly into the caddy, we suggest lining the bottom first with some newspaper or kitchen roll.
Please note that if you are going to purchase liners from a stockist which is not on the list below, please look out for the 'seedling' logo on the roll which means that the liners are biodegradable.
Please do not line your bags with plastic bags as they are not biodregradable and cannot decompose naturally.
