How many recycling sacks can I order?

You can order one roll of sacks every six weeks until you reach the maximum of 180 sacks. 

Please ensure you squash down your recycling, particularly cardboard and plastic bottles so that you can fit more into each sack. If you need more than 180 sacks because you have a large family or you're a keen recycler then you can contact us and we will assess your situation and provide more sacks as necessary

I have lots of large boxes that I can't fit into the bags

Please fold or break down cardboard boxes. f you are not able to fit the box into a sack by folding it or breaking it down then it is not suitable for our collection vehicles to take.  Please take these items to one of our three Household Waste Recycling Centres  for recycling instead.
