Change to Recycling bags policy – You have to buy your own

Message from the Isle of Wight Council:

From 31 January 2016 the Isle of Wight Council will stop providing clear sacks.  You will need to purchase clear or white sacks for your recycling from the 1 February 2016.  If you have been issued with a code in the last week and haven’t yet collected your bags, please do so as soon as possible.

From Spring 2016 gull-proof sacks will be provided to properties unable to store a wheeled bin.  The gull-proof sacks are provided for you to put your white or clear recycling sacks in at the kerbside on collection day and which can be collapsed and stored indoors when not in use.

If you have any queries relating to this, please contact the Isle of Wight Council on 01983 823777.
