Food waste bags
What is provided?
From April 2018 we will no longer be providing a delivery of food waste bags through letterboxes to all householders in Fife. Food waste bags are however available from Recycling Centres and Kirkcaldy Customer Service Centre (Town House). Householders can collect up to 3 free rolls of food waste bags from Recycling Centres every 12 months.

Is there anything else I can do to wrap food waste?
Yes. You can use newspaper to wrap your food waste or put food into the brown bin loose especially dry foods such as bread.
Or you can buy food waste bags not provided by Fife Council. These can be used in our system provided you see the compostable symbol below. This will ensure that the bags will compost in our Anaerobic Digestion Plant and create compost. Most 7-litre compostable bags fit into the food waste caddies provided by Fife Council. The bags purchased for Fife Council are 200mm (bottom) x 390mm (top) x 360mm (length).
Are any further changes planned in the future?
We are looking at other ways of providing food waste bags to householders. Any changes will be advertised this on this webpage.
