Cost of living support
Colchester Borough Council is providing support for residents facing the cost of living crisis.
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. These 100% compostable liners are made from renewable vegetable and biodegradable materials.
Please do not line your bags with plastic bags as they are not biodegradable and cannot decompose naturally.
