Green bin collections to be monthly over winter

Between December and March, green bins will be collected monthly

Kitchen caddies and liners

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

Caddy liners

  • 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.
