Plastic refuse sacks
Each household on a 'black sack route' is entitled to 24 sacks, delivered every 20 weeks. Additional sacks can be purchased at our Pottery Street Recycling Centre. Please follow the link to our Recycling Centres leaflet for opening hours and refer to the link to the Charging Booklet for current costs.
Unless you have a designated sack uplift area, you should place your sacks on the kerbside before 7am on the day of uplift. Do not put sacks out on any other day (plastic waste sacks are a potential littering nuisance, attracting animals, birds and vandals). This is an offence under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
Assisted uplifts can be arranged for the elderly or infirm. Please contact the Recycling Helpline for information.
You can still help achieve our recycling targets by visiting our Recycling Centres at Pottery Street and Kirn Drive and using the Neighbourhood Recycling Points, which are located at convenient locations throughout Inverclyde. For information please refer to links on this page.
The next delivery of sacks is due mid to late September 2018.
Please note deliveries are subject to the availability of adequate resources, suppliers and weather conditions and on occasions may be delayed.
