Between September and October, we deliver a roll of clear sacks to every household. The roll contains enough sacks for you to use one a week, and should last for 12 months. You can't order new rolls of clear sacks for plastics.
We request that you wash, squash and put the lids back on plastic bottles. This will remove the air from the packaging and allow you to fit more in each sack.
You can also use other bags for your plastics, as long as they are clear so we can see what they contain. You need to put these bags out on your normal plastics collection day.
You should not take your clear sacks to an Essex County Council-operated Recycling Centre for Household Waste. They do not accept as many types of plastic packaging as our kerbside collection service and may not be able to recycle your plastic.
