Caddies arrive for food trial
Over 9,000 food waste collection caddies have arrived at South Kesteven District Council ready for delivery to the 4,700 households taking part in a year-long recycling trial.
People will be asked to dispose of uneaten food and food waste into the small, silver caddy-style bin for their kitchen.
They will then empty their bagged waste into the larger outside container.
Waste from the new bins will be collected each week for environmentally-friendly processing on the usual collection day, whether it's their black bin or recycling week.
The 12-month trial is being run in South Kesteven by the Lincolnshire Waste Partnership and will be funded by Lincolnshire County Council, to gauge participation rates of the potential new service.
It includes selected homes in Grantham, Stamford, Bourne, The Deepings and several villages across South Kesteven, which all share the same bin collection round.
Coun Dr Peter Moseley, SKDC cabinet member for environment, said: "We're pleased that many residents preparing to take part in this trial took the time to come and visit us at a series of drop-in sessions during the past two weeks to find out more about how they can make a real difference."
