Additional Waste and Recycling Sacks (Mid Suffolk Only)

In the Mid Suffolk area, residents are able to purchase authorised refuse, recycling and garden waste sacks to allow excess to be taken with the refuse or recycling bins. See below for details of the service and a list of stockists.

Cardboard boxes can be placed flat packed by the side of the recycling bin as long as they are dry.
