As the new reusable pink bag for plastics is being introduced county wide we are reducing the number of locations stocking single-use pink sacks to collect. If your street is still using the single-use pink sack collection service you can get more sacks by using the reorder tag or request a delivery as described below. 

Recycling bag

Need more recycling bags?

We want to make it as easy to recycle as possible. To help make sure you always have enough bags and bins these are available from from a number of places.

Green, pink and food bags

More recycling bags can be requested at the kerbside by using the re-order tag inside each roll. Place this on your bag on collection day as you start running low and the collection crews should then deliver a replacement roll or pack for you.

Replacement recycling bags including green, pink and food waste bags can also be collected from a number of locations, with a full list available below.

Garden waste bags

Reusable garden waste bags are available for a small cost from all district housing offices. Weighted bags which are less likely to blow away are available for £2 each.

Writing your address on your bag will help crews return them after emptying. A maximum of 10 garden bags can be placed out for any single collection.

Food waste bins

Large and small food waste bins are available to collect from all district housing offices.


There are lots of locations across the city and county where you can collect new green and pink recycling bags, garden waste bags and food waste bins and bags. Our list is split into areas and includes a link to show the location on a map.
