Food waste can be contained in a compostable caddy liner or wrapped in newspaper before placing in your 23 litre food waste bin. Compostable caddy liners are made from corn starch and should display the compostable logo.
You can also use your own indoor container — do whatever works for you.
Using a caddy
1. Place a compostable caddy liner in the food waste caddy, or line with newspaper.
2. Place all your food waste into the kitchen caddy.
3. When you are ready to empty the caddy, tie the top of the bag.
4. Place in the 23-litre food waste bin, making sure to lock the lid to prevent spillages or animals gaining access to the contents
All homes in Warwick district with a green garden and food waste collection can recycle all food waste using the green wheeled bin.
