Stores gear up for new food waste service

A network of local retailers has been set up in the Cotswolds to sell compostable liners which will be suitable for use under the District's new food waste collection service.

The weekly collection of food waste for composting is a key element of Cotswold District Council's new waste and recycling collection service, which is being introduced across the District from this Spring.

All households will soon be issued with a 10-litre food waste container. The container will be dishwasher-proof, but if residents want to keep it clean, they will be able to line it either with a small amount of newspaper or an approved compostable liner, which displays the compostable logo.

These liners are already available for sale at a number of local retailers across the District, including:
Gardiners Homecentre, 68-72 Dyer Street, Cirencester
Chesterton Stores, 35 Countess Lilias Road, Cirencester
The Mounties, 41 Mount Street, Cirencester
Stratton Convenience Stores, 17-19 Cheltenham Road, Cirencester
