Refuse and recycling sacks

We collect your refuse (black sacks) and recycling (green sacks) on a weekly basis from the curtilage of your property.

All households in South Holland are entitled to 52 black sacks. These are delivered twice a year, in batches of 26 sacks. If you need more than 52 black refuse sacks within a year, they can be purchased at most supermarkets and hardware stores.

All households in South Holland are also entitled to 80 green recycling sacks. These are delivered with the black sacks, in batches of 40.

If you run out of green sacks, you can put your recycling in:

  • any other clear coloured sack (except black)
  • a suitably sized recyclable container (which will not be returned)
  • a cardboard box or carrier bag.

If you have just moved into a property in South Holland and require a black refuse sack or a green recycling sack delivery, please complete our request additional bags form.
