Food waste bags

Food waste bags are not currently available at collection points until further notice. We are unable to make other arrangements to provide householders with food waste bags at present.

Is there anything else I can do to wrap food waste?

Yes. You can use newspaper, used office paper, or a paper bag to wrap your food waste. You can also put food into the brown bin loose, especially dry foods such as bread.

If you need food bags, you can buy food waste bags from local suppliers, such as supermarkets. These can be used in our system provided you see the compostable symbol. This will ensure that the bags will compost in our Anaerobic Digestion Plant and create compost. Most 7-litre compostable bags fit into the food waste caddies provided by Fife Council.
