Food waste collections

Find out about food waste collections, if your home is eligible, what you can put in your food waste and when your collection day is.  

We collect food waste free of charge from street level properties with space to store their own bin.  Some flats are also included in the service, and we hope to make this service available more widely to more flats from 2020.

What you can put in your food waste bin

You can use your food waste collection for:

  • meat fish and bones (cooked or raw)
  • fruit and vegetables
  • bread, rice and pasta
  • eggs and dairy products
  • tea bags and coffee grounds
  • plate scrapings

If your home is eligible for a food waste collection, you should already have a food waste container, and details of your collection days.
