Kitchen caddies can be lined with specially-purchased compostable liners, or with paper towel or newspaper. Alternatively, kitchen caddies can be used as they are and then rinsed out with a little warm water and detergent once the contents has been emptied into your brown bin. Store your kitchen caddy on a counter top or under the sink with the lid closed, this will seal in all odours.
Where can I purchase caddy liners?
Compostable food waste caddy liners are available to buy from the Council's Pullar House office. The cost per roll to Perth and Kinross householders will be £1.25 (25 bags per roll). The bags are being supplied to the Council by Biobags Scotland Ltd.
Biobags Scotland have also created a special online offer for Perth and Kinross householders who are unable to purchase directly from Pullar House. Alternatively, many local stores, supermarkets and chain stores also sell similar products. Any purchased liners must carry the 'compostable' logo, and should have an 8 litre capacity to fit your small kitchen caddy.
