About our Food Waste Scheme

If you would like to be notified of bin collection changes in the future, due to either bank holidays or bad weather, please sign up to email alerts at the bottom of this page.  We will only use your information for the purposes you have supplied it for.

Broadland District Council operates a food waste scheme across certain areas of the district. The scheme provides two bins; a small container called a caddy for use inside the home and a larger container used for collections.

To find out whether your property is included on our Food waste scheme you can use the Bin Day Collection finder service.

The Bin Day Collection finder service will clearly state after your next collection day if you are included in the Food waste scheme service at your property.

The food waste is collected weekly and can be put out alongside either your waste (green bin) or recycling (grey bin). Please put the larger food waste outside container (not the caddy) on the boundary of your property and make sure it is visible.

You can request free liners or use any plastic bag you have available to fit inside the caddy. To get more liners place a handwritten note on top of your collection container when you put it out and the crew will leave a new roll of bags for you.
