Kitchen caddies, compostable liners and garden waste sacks

Last Modified April 24, 2014

Kitchen caddies and compostable caddy liners

Kitchen caddies are available to put your food waste in before transferring to your green bin. Green caddy

These can be picked up free of charge from the following offices:

  • Aldenham Parish Council, The Radlett Centre, Aldenham Avenue, Radlett
  • Area Office, The Bushey Centre, High Street, Bushey
  • Area Office, The Wyllyotts Centre, Darkes Lane, Potters Bar
  • Civic Offices, Elstree Way, Borehamwood


You can then line your caddy either with newspaper or our compostable bags. Please note: our compostable bags with the Hertsmere logo on (pictured below) are the only bags we accept in the green bin. Unfortunately plastic bags and other liners such as supermarket biodegradable or compostable bags cannot be accepted - they will be considered as contamination and your bin will not be emptied.

You can buy our compostable bags from the following locations - they cost £2.50 per roll of 52:

Garden waste sacks garden waste sack

We are not able to give out extra green bins, however garden waste sacks are available to put
out alongside your green bin. The paper sacks can be bought from the same outlets as the
compostable bags above - they are 50p each.

The sacks are 75 litres and can be filled with any extra garden waste that won't fit in your green
bin. You can put a maximum of three bags out with your green bin on collection day.
