Kitchen food waste

Kitchen food waste

Some of your kitchen waste can be put into your green bin.

What food waste items can go in my green bin?


YES

  • Food waste - cooked and raw meat, fish, dairy, vegetable or fruit peelings*

*You can wrap your food waste in newspaper or put it in a paper bag.

Please do not put biodegradable 'plastic' or corn starch bags in your green bin. These do not breakdown quickly enough and result in extra processing costs

Kitchen caddy and paper liners

  • These can be used for your kitchen food waste and then emptied into your green bin when full.

Paper kitchen caddy liners can be purchased from our Cambourne offices, directly from alina or from most supermarkets.


Your food waste can also be put in your black bin with your general household non-recyclable and non-compostable waste.
