Join the food waste collection service.
Let your food waste contribute for composting instead of it being sent for disposal.
Internal kitchen caddy: seven litre bin to collect the food waste.
Caddy liners: A roll of 52 liners. These liners are to insert into your food waste caddy. Please store these in a dry place.
Tip: you may use newspaper to line the food waste caddy.
External food storage bin: A 23 litre bin with self locking lid, to store the full corn starch bags until the bin is emptied each week.
The food waste bin will be emptied each week by the same crew that collect the garden waste. Please place your food bin with your garden waste at your property boundary for collection. The food waste will make compost along with the garden waste in the West London Composting (opens in a new window) facility at Harefield.
For the first time, you'll need to order a kitchen caddy and a food waste liner set which we aim to deliver within 10 working days of the request at no charge:
Save time and sign up for automatic delivery and never run out of bags. If you don't want to be part of the scheme, you can order per roll
Caddy liner bags are now available through our Libraries. Should you wish to change or cancel your order please call 01895 556000

To keep the caddy clean you have been provided with a roll of compostable liners. These are made from corn starch and biodegrade faster than normal plastic bags. Please only use the liners for your caddy. This helps the composting process. Do not use other plastic bags or this will impede the composting of the food waste. Your caddy is also dishwasher proof.
