Compact Kitchen Caddy

Achieving high organics adoption is all about providing convenience. For some spaces, the conventional Kitchen Caddies are just too large.

This 5 Litre Compact Caddy retains all our usual features. There is no sacrifice on the opening width for plate scraping, and it cleverly retains the educational advantages of the in-mould label. However, with the new thin design, the Compact Caddy cleverly optimises space.

If you can fit a cereal box in your cupboards, you can pack away this caddy, making it perfect for MUDS, lifestyle and retirement villages. In corporate spaces, the sleeker design fits more neatly in kitchenettes behind the sink, or next to the coffee machine to collect tea leaves and coffee grinds.

This Compact Kitchen Caddy is specifically designed, printed and manufactured in Australia, for Australian families. Reflecting our team’s commitment to the circular economy, the unit is manufactured from at least 80% Post-Consumer Recycled Content, usually collected from the contents of council roadside collection bins.

In Australia, approximately half of household waste is organic. As such, a successful council organics diversion program can have a significant impact in reducing community landfill rates, however the key to success is convenience and education.

This Compact 5 Litre Kitchen Caddy builds upon the proven success of our previous conventional caddy, however the modified body shape cleverly optimised space. Importantly the unit fits our range of 8 Litre Compost-A-Pak®Liners, both the flat top and singlet designs.

This unit also retains the educational advantages of in-mould label. In a longer landscape design, a full colour label is inserted into the caddy lid during manufacture. As a result, educational messages are embedded as a reminder for users every time they divert their food waste.

The unit features a single sturdy carry handle, and lockable, snap fitting lid, which flips back to create a full opening for plate scraping. There is a rear mounting tab, so the unit can be attached to a wall or under-sink door, hanging on screws. The venting channels build into the base design makes it much easier to remove the liner and waste.

Our standard unit is made with at least 80% Post Consumer Recycled Content. We regularly work with Councils on unique FOGO designs, with a range of custom-coloured caddies available to be manufactured in Australia from up to 100% Post-Consumer Recycled Content.

This Recycling Stream is right for you

Compost-A-Pak Liners and Caddy


Over half of the average Australian household’s waste is food waste. In fact, the average family throws out approximately 1 of every 5 bags of food they purchase. Diverting this waste from landfill to either home composters or commercial composting facilities can have significant environmental benefits, with the resulting nutrients from food breaking down into compost, which can be used to nourish the soil for future crops or community gardens.

Alternatively, when such precious organic matter is simply thrown away with other mixed waste, the resulting Landfill sites can emit air pollution including methane gas which is linked to global warming, as well as causing soil and water pollution impacting on local plants and animals.

Our Kitchen Caddy range is proven successful in supporting the communities to divert their food waste to be composted. Convenient with guided educational instructions, the solution is recycling just as nature intended.
