Free recycle sacks now available in four Royal Greenwich libraries

Published Thursday, 20 April 2017

From today the four biggest libraries will be providing free recycling sacks.

Four of the Royal Borough of Greenwich's libraries - Woolwich Centre, the Greenwich Centre, the Eltham Centre and Blackheath Library - will be stocking free recycling sacks for collection from today (20 April). This will provide easy-to-find collection points for residents keen to recycle, in addition to the online service already available to them.

When you collect the sacks, you will need to show proof that you are a resident of the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

Councillor Jackie Smith, Cabinet Member for Community Safety and Environment said, "The Royal Borough of Greenwich will continue to make it as easy as possible for residents to recycle and manage their household waste responsibly. This move will make the collection of free recycling sacks quicker and easier while also ensuring that residents unable to visit one of these libraries will still have access to our online ordering and delivery service."

A complete list of the different kinds of sacks available to order online can be found below. Only clear recycling bags are available to residents to order and collect for free; other orders will incur a small charge.
