Food waste is collected weekly in Daventry District.
There are two containers for food waste - a small caddy for your kitchen, and a larger bin with a lockable lid which should be presented on your collection day.
All leftover raw and cooked foods can be put into the caddy, including vegetable peelings, out of date food, plate scraping, solid fats, meat and fish bones. Please do not put any liquids in the caddy.
You can line your caddy with paper, compostable bags or plastic caddy liners.
We would encourage every household to use this service, as recycling your food waste will also help to slim the waste in your black bin and reduce potential smells from it.
