Single-use sacks

Find out about compostable single-use sacks, which you can buy as part of our garden waste recycling service.

These paper sacks cost £10 for five and you can buy them as and when you need them.  The sacks will be delivered to your home, or you can buy them from the council offices.

Each sack is 75 litres (about the same size as a standard bin bag).

Using your compostable single-use sacks

As the sacks are compostable, they will start to break down when wet.

You should store them in a dry area until you want to use them, and you should not fill them more than two weeks before your collection.

Once used, you can leave them outside in all weathers for up to two weeks.

What single-use sacks are useful forCollecting leaves into a garden waste sack

These are for one-off use. You can use them one or two at a time or put them out for collection all at the same time.

They are particularly helpful to top up the wheelie bin service during seasonal times, such as in the autumn, when you might have more leaves to pick up.

These sacks can also be useful if you have a low maintenance or small garden.

Plastic single-use sacks

We no longer sell the green plastic single-use sacks. If you still have some left over, you can still use them as normal.
