You can no longer order covers for the blue boxes. If you live in the city centre and use red and blue boxes, we still provide covers for the red box service. Covers are available from Central and Stockbridge libraries.

You can buy compostable liners for your food waste caddy at all libraries for £1 a roll, or at many supermarkets.
