Before using your new green bin, remember to remove the kitchen caddy from the handle.

The kitchen caddy is a mini-bin to keep in your kitchen, making it easy to collect food scraps, carry them outside and tip them into your green bin. Only your large green bin is put out on the kerb for collection.

You’ll find information on how to use the green bin inside the kitchen caddy along with a handy guide to your waste services, with a magnet on the back so you can keep it on the fridge.

The new green bin service gives households confidence that their food and garden waste is being professionally composted and reused, rather than being sent to landfill where it creates methane as it breaks down. The rollout of this new service is supported by the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA), through ‘Go FOGO’ grant funding.
