Questions

Won't my external food waste caddy get broken into by animals before it is collected?

Your external caddy has a lid lock, designed to prevent animals from breaking into it or spilling if tipped over.
Always remember to keep your caddy handle in the locked position for storage and when presenting for collection.


Back to Questions

Will my food waste caddy smell?

It shouldn’t if you empty your kitchen caddy out regularly into your external caddy and line your caddy. Rinsing out your caddies from time to time will also help.


Back to Questions
