Free cardboard recycling bags

To help stop cardboard blowing around our streets, South Gloucestershire Council is providing local residents that want one with a FREE bag for recycling cardboard. 

They will be available from 22 August on a first come, first served basis (one per household) from the following local places:
  • Yate Leisure Centre
  • Yate Library
  • Chipping Sodbury Library
  • Yate Town Council (Poole Court)
  • Dodington Parish Council (Dodington Parish Hall, Finch Rd)
  • Frampton Cotterell Parish Council (Brockeridge Centre)
Other locations are listed on the South Glos cardboard recycling web page

If you have a disability or mobility issue and there is no one else that can collect a bag for you, South Glos may be able to arrange delivery. Please contact 01454 863593 or email to talk about your situation.
(Delivery may take up to 10 working days)

    Just saw these for the first time today on the street so didn't know they had been issued. Does anywhere still have them?

  2. No more are being bought, but you could try contacting individual locations. I think there MIGHT still be a few at Dodington Parish Council (Dodington Parish Hall, Finch Rd) - try ringing 01454 866546 to ask them.

  3. I've checked today, and there are about 50 left at Dodington Parish Council.
