For most households, we have introduced green recycling wheelie bins to replace the clear recycling sacks. Only a small number of properties in Lambeth will still use recycling sacks.
Who can use this service
You can check to see if you're entitled to use recycling sacks in your mylambeth account.
When you log into your account, the waste services information box on your homepage will tell you when your next delivery date for recycling sacks is.
If you don't see this message then you're no longer able to use clear recycling bags and should put your recycling in your green wheelie bin or communal recycling bin.
- 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.

How to order recycling sacks
Recycling sacks are delivered three times a year. If you run out before your next delivery you can order more using mylambeth.
To order recycling sacks, register or log into your mylambeth account and use the 'Order replacement containers and recycling sacks' form.
If you can see the delivery date for recycling sacks in the waste services information box but can't order them through the form, please email StreetCareCallCentre@lambeth.gov.uk.
