Pink recycling sacks
Pink sack collection
Pink recycling sacks can no longer be collected from the Community Contact Centre or the Tourist Information Centre.
If you do not have a recycling bin or pinks sacks, please use any plastic sack that can be identified as recycling such as carrier bags.
Please do not use black sacks for recycling.
Check your collection
Not sure which collection you are? You can check what collection you are and whether you should use pink sacks on our collection day look up calendar.
If you are on weekly collections
You will not have a green recycling bin and your recycling must be placed in pink sacks for collection.
Glass bottles and jars can be placed in with other recycling in pink sacks.
You will receive a delivery of pink sacks to your property once a year. If you need more pink sacks, you can collect them from either the Community Contact Centre or the Tourist Information Centre. The opening hours for both can be found here.
If you have assisted collections
If you have assisted collections and need more pink sacks, someone on your behalf can come and collect them from either the Community Contact Centre or the Tourist Information Centre. The opening hours for both can be found here.
If this is not possible you can request more pink sacks using our online form Request pink recycling bags for assisted collections. This service is only for residents that are registered for an assisted waste collection.
If you have a green recycling bin
If you have a green recycling bin you do not need to use pink sacks and you will not be eligible for them.
Your recycling should be placed straight into the bin.
If you have more recycling waste than you can fit in your bin, you can place it beside the bin in plastic bags of any colour but not in a typical black refuse sack.
