Brown bin/caddy - food waste

The brown bin food waste service will be suspended from 4 November 2018

We will be suspending the separate food waste service from 4 November.

Please be aware we will not be emptying any brown food waste bins from 4 November, your last separate food waste collection until further notice, will take place on your normal food waste collection day on the week commencing 29 October.

All food waste should be placed in your black refuse bin from 4 November.

From October 2018, we will be reviewing how to deliver the recycling and waste services so that it is both economically and environmentally beneficial. We will then look to reintroduce the separate food waste collection service to a timescale which meets the requirements of the London Environment Strategy.

We are advising residents to clean and store their food waste bin and caddy for future use.

The future of separate food waste service was discussed at the Environment Committee meetings of 5 June and 13 September, read the relevant documents here

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding the suspension of the separate food waste service are available.

There is advice on home composting and wormeries including discounted bins and getting started as well as ways to reduce your food waste, saving up to £70 a month.

We thank you for your participation in this service.
