Residents in West Norfolk will no longer need to purchase compostable caddy liners for their food waste bins.

Changes to the processing technology means waste food and leftovers can be placed in any type of small bags or wrapping, including carrier bags.

West Norfolk council will phase out the requirement for compostable caddy liners in the next few weeks.

But any food not placed in some form of wrapping in the bin may result in the food waste bin not being collected.

Councillor Ian Devereux said: 'This makes it much easier for people as they don't have to remember to buy compostable bags from us or other retailers. They can reuse any bags they may have around the house.

'I hope that this change will encourage more residents to take up the food waste service as it is a great way to prevent waste from going into landfill.'
