Kitchen organics basketEach 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.


How do I get a kitchen organics caddy
