It can be extremely confusing to know what bin systems are available for you, especially as each council in SA has some differences.
The good news is there are consistencies between councils and it can be really easy to get your bin system working properly.
Did you know that most councils offer a food bin caddy to collect food scraps?
Did you know they provide you with the correct compostable bags?
DID YOU KNOW THAT IT IS PART OF YOUR COUNCIL RATES?
So what can go in a kitchen caddy? Items suitable include:
Fruit and vegetable scraps
Dairy products (e.g. cheese, no plastic bags)
Egg shells, oyster shells
Meat and bones (raw or cooked)
Tea bags and coffee
Tissues and paper towels
We have helped you out and provided a list of Councils who can provide you with a food caddy for your home (click the links below to find out more):
