For most households, we have introduced green recycling wheelie bins to replace the clear recycling sacks. Only a small number of properties in Lambeth still use recycling sacks.
Who can use this service
You can check if you're entitled to use recycling sacks by entering your address on the container requests form to see which container type your property has been allocated.
- You don't need to bag your recycling to put it in the green wheelie bin or large communal recycling bins
- We recommend that you keep a reusable bag, cardboard box or plastic container in your home to store your recycling
- When it's time to empty this, just tip the recycling in your green wheelie bin or communal bin and use the storage item again.
