AROUND 38,000 homes across North Devon are to get new kitchen caddies over the next few weeks, in time for the start of a food waste recycling service.

North Devon Council is launching its second major phase of the service from Monday, October 12.

Councillor Rodney Cann, Lead Member for Waste and Recycling, said the launch of the food waste recycling service would help the council to cut down on the amount of waste it sent to landfill.

"Therefore, when you get your new kitchen caddy, keep it somewhere safe, as you will soon be able to use it - benefiting not only you and your family, but also helping future generations," he said.

Residents will also be given reusable brown bags at the same time as they get their kitchen caddies. These brown bags can be used to collect flattened cardboard, as this will no longer be accepted in green wheelie bins when the food waste service starts.

Details on how to use the new food waste and cardboard recycling services will be sent out with the caddies, along with a guide to show what other items can be recycled.
