Carrier bags

Carrier bags


Carrier bags are generally made from paper, card or soft plastics.


Carrier bags made from paper or card when no longer suitable for use, should be placed in the household recycling bin.

Carrier bags made from soft plastics should be reused indefinitely and when become no longer fit for purpose should be disposed of in the general waste bin.


Please make sure carrier bags suitable for recycling are clean, dry and placed loosely in the bin.
