Additional waste that you can't fit in your bin?
At Babergh and Mid Suffolk, we're all about waste reduction and recycling and you can read our waste policies here.
We've also included lots of top tips about what you can do to reduce your waste or alternative ways to recycle below.
For more information about how to dispose of hazardous waste, please head to the bottom of this page.
Most importantly, look at how you might be able to reduce your waste first, and where you can't, look to reuse and recycle wherever possible.
The link includes cloth nappies, composting, charity shops and more!
If occasionally, your bins are too full for more recycling or an item is too big to fit in your bin you may wish to consider the following options.
Head to one of the recycling centres across Suffolk run by Suffolk County Council.
Additional recycling in any clear sack or one of our authorised sacks, as well as dry flattened cardboard can be collected when left beside your recycling bin on your collection day.
In Mid Suffolk only, we also provide an authorised sack scheme for additional general waste (orange sacks) and garden waste (green sacks), which can be placed beside your general waste bin on collection day.
Authorised sacks can be purchased from our authorised sack stockists
Larger or additional bins
If you're struggling to reduce your waste and regularly have full bins, you may be eligible for a larger or additional bin.
If this is because of medical waste, please apply for our free medical waste collections instead.
The bins will be clean and serviceable, but we can't guarantee they'll be new.
General waste bins cost £33.50
Recycling bins are free
