We are excited to be working in partnership with Essex County Council to increase the amount of food recycled through your weekly food recycling collection in Tendring.
From Monday 16th October you will notice a sticker on your bin, a roll of compostable food caddy liners and an information leaflet arrive at your door.
In Essex, roughly 25% of waste thrown away in the general rubbish is food. Not only is this a waste of money but it’s also damaging the environment. When food is sent to landfill, it lets off harmful greenhouse gases which contribute to climate change. However, when food waste is recycled at the kerbside, it is transformed into energy and fertiliser!
If you need a replacement outdoor food caddy please email firstname.lastname@example.org

If you do not have boxes or your current boxes are un-usable, you are able to continue to recycle by presenting materials in a suitable alternative container, please do not put recyclable materials in bags or cardboard boxes as this will not be collected.
You can purchase a roll of 50 food caddy bags from your local library or Council office for only £1.80.
Gull proof bags are available from Clacton Town Hall reception for £10, the re-useable bag will protect your black sacks from being ripped open by birds and animals on collection day. Please note: Libraries do not hold stock of Gull proof bags.
How to use the bags:
We also sell rolls of black sacks for £3.30 per roll.
