Buy bags when you need, and save!

The rubbish bag system is changing from July 2018. Instead of getting a voucher for 52 rubbish bags as part of your rates (or provided by your landlord), residents will need to purchase bags from Council offices, the supermarket or other retailer.

This change is all about reducing the amount of waste we’re sending to landfill - buying rubbish bags makes people think about how many they really need, and whether they could save money (and the environment) by recycling or composting some of that waste.
