Smart sack deliveries

All residents who put their recycling and refuse at the kerbside for collection will get two rolls of smart sacks delivered twice a year.

This is a change from the previous arrangement of four deliveries per year but only one roll per delivery. This new arrangement will help to reduce costs and CO2 emissions.

Smart sacks are not provided to properties with the new green wheeled bins or communal recycling bins with an orange lid.

Residents using the recycling bins should put the recyclables straight into the bin. Loose filling the bin helps reduce unnecessary plastic bag use.
