Kitchen Organics Service
The kitchen organics service makes composting food easy.
Each household in the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is entitled to one free kitchen organics caddy.
The caddy can be used to store food waste before it is emptied into the green bin to be collected with garden waste. This stops food waste being sent to landfill and is recycled into compost.
Please note: This offer is only available to residential properties that do not have a kitchen organics caddy. If you are a business, school, non-for-profit, other and would like to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill, register to receive updates
How do I get a kitchen organics caddy
Kitchen caddies are only available to residential properties that do not already have a kitchen organics caddy.
Kitchen caddies come with an annual supply of compostable bags (BioBags). If you are requesting a caddy, please do not make a separate request for a BioBag delivery.
We are offering a kitchen caddy home delivery service up until June 2021. To request a home delivery, please complete the Request a Caddy form below. Delivery takes place once per month.
Please note: in some instances delivery may not occur when a resident is not home and there isn't a secure or dry place to leave the caddy and compostable bags (BioBags).
