Need more recycling bags?

We want to make it as easy to recycle as possible. To help make sure you always have enough bags and bins these are available from from a number of places.

Please note open days and times of businesses will vary. We will do our best to keep these outlets stocked but we cannot guarantee that bags will be available when you arrive. 

Please be considerate and only take one roll of each type of bag so there is enough for everyone. Each green roll has 26 bags and food liner has 48 therefore should last for weeks' worth of collections.

Green and food bags

Replacement bags can be requested at the kerbside by using the re-order tag inside each roll. Place this on your bag on collection day when you start running low and the collection crews should then leave a new roll for you.

More of these bags are also available to collect from a number of shops and council outlets across Swansea. See full list below.

Food bins and reusable pink bags

You can collect replacements for these from libraries, housing offices and recycling centres across Swansea. See full list below.

Single-use pink plastic bags

If you live on one of the small number of streets which still have to use the single use pink bags you can request replacements from our collection crews at the kerbside using the reorder tag inside each roll. If you live in a flat block with pink wheeled bins then your site caretaker will be able to provide replacement single use pink bags.

Garden bags 

Garden bags are available to purchase for £2.50 each from libraries and housing offices. Payment is by card only in the housing offices. We recommend phoning ahead before making a special trip to ensure items are available in stock.
