Clear recycling sacks

You do not need to use bags in your blue top bin for recycling.

This saves you money, leaves more space in your bin and means you use less single-use plastic. 

You can recycle leftover clear recycling bags or other plastic bags at the supermarket or re-use them for your shopping.

Ordering recycling bags if you do not have space for bins

For residents that do not have space for bins, you can make one order of 2 rolls of clear recycling bags. These should last six months, using two sacks per week.

To order, email your full address and postcode to contact.centre@royalgreenwich.gov.uk or phone 0208 921 4661.

Once your order is made, we'll check your address to see if you cannot have bins due to space. If you can only use bags, we'll place your order and send it as soon as we can. If you are not eligible your order will not be placed.
