Kitchen basket for food scraps
Between August and October 2020, Council expanded the food scrap recycling service to all residents in the Council area. Thanks to a grant from Green Industries SA, Council delivered a kitchen caddy kit, including a roll of compostable bags, to all residents. A roll of 150 bags should last most households approximately 12 months.
Council currently provides an annual allocation of compostable bags to households using the food scrap system. These can be collected from the Council offices during office hours 172 Montacute Rd, Rostrevor. Additional rolls of bags can be purchased for $10.
The kitchen basket and compostable bags are an easy and efficient way of recycling your food scraps through your green organics bin. Use your basket in the kitchen either on the bench top or under the sink. When full simply tie off the compostable bag and place it directly into your green organics bin. This material will then be sent to a commercial composting facility where it will be turned into high quality compost.
