Order recycling sacks

Collect recycling sacks from libraries

Clear recycling sacks are now available for collection at some borough libraries. There have also been some other changes to how you can leave your recycling for collection.

If your household is a street-level property and your general rubbish is collected in ordinary dustbins or refuse sacks, you are eligible for the clear sack recycling scheme.

You should receive regular deliveries of clear recycling sacks. However, households that run out of sacks do not have to wait for their next delivery. Extra sacks can be ordered via the form below or you can put recycling out for collection in any clear sack.

If your home has large, communal wheeled bins, you are not eligible for the recycling sack service. If you are using communal bins for your rubbish, you should also have orange-lidded communal recycling containers.

What happens next

We aim to deliver recycling sacks within 14 working days of ordering. Sacks are delivered separately to your normal collection day.

We are aware of additional demand and requests for sacks and ask for your patience and understanding at this time. If possible, please store your recycling until your sacks arrive.

If your sacks are not delivered within 14 working days, report a missed sack delivery.

Regular deliveries

You should receive regular deliveries of clear recycling sacks unless your home has communal wheeled bins. If you don't receive these, please let us know.

Blocks with porterage service

For blocks where residents have a porterage service for their waste, premise managers can contact us to buy recycling sacks. The cost is £67.50 for 30 rolls of 30 sacks.
