Green recycling bags: your last but one green bag should have a coloured sticker on it. Write your house number on it and display where it can be seen - when your next recycling collection is due, refuse collectors will know to give you a new stock. Green bags can also be picked up from all libraries and leisure centres in the city and many local shops. Check our website for the full list
White composting bags: you can reorder a new supply of white bags by emailing email@example.com or by telephoning 029 2087 2087.
