By collecting your food scraps in a kitchen caddy for recycling in your green organics bin, you are helping to reduce our waste to landfill and cost of waste disposal to the community. This is great for our environment and economy.
All food scraps, cooked and raw, can be collected in your kitchen caddy and placed into the green organics bin along with your garden clippings.
Each City of Marion residence is entitled to 150 (two rolls of 75) compostable bags per financial year.
You can collect your kitchen caddy bags from one of the Council venues listed below or request delivery to your home. This delivery service is part of a one-year trial (from August 2022).
