Council officials collected 26 tonnes of food waste on Tuesday March 1, the first day of the new weekly silver caddy service. The council has distributed 69,000 of the new silver food waste caddies, rolls of liners and information leaflets to people’s homes.

So far the council has sold 31,100 subscriptions to the new paid-for garden waste service as well.

The council is reminding people that all bins and caddies should be placed outside the edge of their property by 7am on their collection day. They may be emptied from any time up until 5pm and, because the silver caddy is emptied by a different crew, it may be emptied at a different time of day to the other bins.
