If you live in Warwickshire and have a green wheelie bin then you can recycle all your food waste.
Please do not put plastic, or biodegradable bags into your green bin as they contaminate the load and will not compost.
All biodegradable material is not necessarily compostable, but a compostable material is always biodegradable.

- If everyone in Warwickshire placed their food waste in their green bins rather than their black/grey bins we could save around £1 million every year.
- Recycled food waste can be used on farmer’s fields as a soil improver, reducing the need for fertilisers.
- By recycling food waste it reduces the amount of greenhouse gases that are thought to be a major contributor to climate change.
We have teamed up with Biobag to offer residents of Warwickshire discounted compostable caddy liners – 150 liners – for only £7.95. The liners will fit caddy bins up to 10 litres capacity, are 100% compostable and will be delivered direct to your door at no extra cost.
Food and garden waste placed in the green bin will be sent to an in-vessel composting facility in Warwickshire. More information about this can be seen in our video What happens to my food waste?.
