Important information about compostable liners for food waste

Due to shortages in the national supply chain we are currently unable to maintain our usual stock levels of compostable liners for food waste recycling. This may result in our supplies temporarily running out and a delay in us being able to provide replacement liners.

What to do if you need a new roll of compostable liners

Put your yellow tag on your bin as usual. If we don't leave you a replacement roll on collection day, please leave the yellow tag on your bin. We will provide you with liners as soon as we can.

What to do if you run out of compostable liners

If you run out of compostable liners, please continue to recycle your food waste but place it loose inside your brown bin.

Please do not use newspaper or plastic bags because:

  • newspaper is not a suitable alternative, it inhibits the composting process
  • recycling is spoiled and rejected at the recycling centre if it is placed inside a plastic bag
  • only compostable liners with the seedling logo and reference code  EN13432t are suitable

Thank you for your support and patience during this time of national disruption in the product chain.
