Collect food caddy liners

Food caddy liners

To recycle your food waste you may need a caddy and some caddy liners. 

Many caddy liner distribution points are now temporarily closed in response to the latest government advice on the coronavirus.

A number of Spar Stores are once again distributing caddy liners. Please use the map to locate your nearest participating store.

Caddy liners can also be collected at: 

Danestone Community Centre
Open 11am – 2.30pm Tuesday  - Thursday

Mastrick Community Centre
Open 9am – 2pm Tuesday  and 10am – 12pm Thursday.

Powis Community Centre
Open 9.30am – 2pm Monday  - Friday

As an alternative to caddy liners you can:

  • Use an ice cream tub or other container to collect your food waste and then tip it directly into your communal food waste bin or brown bin. 

  • Wrap food scraps in newspaper or paper towels and put directly into your communal food waste bin or brown bin.

  • Uncooked food such as fruit and vegetable peelings can be home composted 

There are a number of distribution points across the city where you can pick up free caddy liners:

The map below shows all the places that you can collect food caddy liners from. You can zoom in and out of the map using the plus and minus signs at the top left, or use the search box at the top right to find an address or postcode and see where you can collect food caddy liners nearby.

To become a distribution point

If you are a charity, organisation, health care provider etc. and are interested in distributing our free caddy liners please contact us using our general enquiries form.

We are hoping to increase distribution points to improve access and availability of bags and welcome any suggestions you may have.
