How to open your compostable bags

Friday, July 19, 2019

With the introduction of food waste recycling, we're providing compostable bags for residents who wish to use them. These bags are made out of corn starch and break down during the composting process.

We are receiving enquiries from residents about the bags so have produced this simple video showing how to open them. 

Here's how to open your bags:

1. Rip it off the roll.

2. Fold out the sides.

3. Rub the top of the bag between your thumb and finger to open the bag.

4. Now you are ready to use the bag to line your caddy.
