We provide free kitchen caddies to Cambridge residents for collecting food waste to put in your green bin or on your compost heap.
You can collect a 5-litre kitchen caddy from:
- Customer service centre reception (liner bags also available)
- City Homes office (liner bags also available)
- The Guildhall
- Only use 100% paper caddy liners or newspaper. Any 100% paper caddy liners can be used, for example those produced by EcoSack or Alina.
- Do not use compostable or biodegradable ‘plastic’ cornstarch liners. They do not break down quickly enough for our fast-composting process.
We sell 8-litre paper caddy liners at our customer service centre and City Homes office. The liners cost £3 for a pack of 50 – you can only buy one pack at a time. We only sell liners to Cambridge residents – you might be asked for proof of your address.
