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.

Tesco and other carrier bags labelled "biodegradable/degradable" are not suitable for use in our food waste collections.
