Garden waste sacks

Sacks can be purchased if garden waste bins are not available in your area or your household is exempt from wheelie bins.

Garden sacks are sent for landfill disposal so are collected on the grey landfill week, not on the green recycling week. The sacks should be put out for collection with your grey wheelie bin or black sacks.

Sacks can be purchased at £2.60 each from our Community Contact Centres in Evesham Library, Oat Street, Droitwich Spa Library, Victoria Square,  Civic Centre, Pershore or Broadway Library. Alternatively, we can post them to you:
