How to request more bags using the yellow sticker

If you already have a roll of bags, you should find a large yellow sticker inside. Write your house number on it, and stick it on one of your full recycling bags. The recycling crew will leave you a new roll when they pick your bags up on collection day. You can also download and print your own sticker using the link below:

What if I've requested bags and they haven't arrived?

If you’ve left a sticker on your bags and didn’t receive a roll that day, you can order orange bags online. If you’ve done that and bags have not arrived within three working days, then you will need to submit a complaint form.

What if I live in a flat?

If you live in an apartment block, halls of residence, or a large house that’s been converted into flats then you may have been provided with communal bins for your recycling. 

Properties with access to a communal recycling bin will not be issued orange bags. Instead, recycling can be placed loose into the bins, or within a transparent carrier bag or transparent bin liner. Do not use black bags in recycling bins, as the collection crew cannot see inside the bags and will not collect them.
