If you don't want to use bags
If you don't want to purchase bags, then you can wrap your food waste in newspaper, old cardboard boxes (e.g. cereal boxes), or place the food directly into the caddy.
Please remember that Tesco and other carrier bags labelled "biodegradable/degradable" are NOT suitable for use in our food waste collections.
