Food caddies

Food caddies are for all your discarded food, including fruit and vegetable peelings, left-overs, egg shells, tea bags and coffee grounds. They are collected every week.


When are my bins collected?


Caddies must be put out on the kerbside before 6:00am on the day of collection and no earlier than 4:30pm the day before.


How to use your kitchen and kerbside caddies:


  • Line your kitchen caddy with the white bags provided and fill it with food
  • Remove all packaging and wrappings from food before putting it in your caddy
  • When the bag is full tie it closed and put it into your larger brown kerbside food caddy
  • Put the brown caddy on the pavement in time for your weekly collection
  • Please do not use plastic bags or the white garden clippings bio-bags to line your brown kerbside food caddy
  • You will have the same food caddy system whether you are in a wheelie bin or bin bag area
