Recycling and rubbish

Food waste recycling

From leftover or out-of-date food to teabags and coffee grounds, find out what you can put in your food waste recycling containers.

What you can't recycle

You can't put this waste in your food recycling bin: 
  • plastic bags
  • oil or grease
  • large bones or carcasses 
  • liquid
  • pet food.

Please don't put your food waste in plastic bags as we can’t compost them. 

You can collect free compostable bags from your local library or purchase them from local retailers.
