No. Not all liners are created equal; some biodegradable or compostable products take longer and require different conditions to break down than others.
We will provide you with the right kind of compostable liners for use in your kitchen caddy. The liners Council provides meet the Australian Standards of AS4736 and AS5810 and are coloured bright green.
If you choose to line your caddy with bags, you must only use the Council provided compostable liners. Paper towel or newspaper is also acceptable to line your kitchen caddy.
Your current roll of compostable liners should last around 6 months if you change them 2 – 3 times a week.
Additional liners will not be available until early 2024. Delivery of additional liners for use in FOGO kitchen caddies has been delayed. Council has a very limited stock of liners at the moment while we wait for further stock to arrive
You can also use paper towel or newspaper to line the bottom or simply wash the caddy.
