New/Replacement brown bags

Due to previous supply issues we are currently dealing with a backlog of requests for brown bag and are processing applications as quickly as possible. Please allow extra time for delivery. We apologise for any issue this may cause. You are still able to recycle paper and cardboard by placing your items in a carboard box, bin bag or carrier bag and these will be colleced on you normal recycling day until your new bag arrives.
