    Could you change your policy and take plastic bags?

    Hello Paul, thanks for your question regarding plastic bags.

    All recycling collected in Lambeth is taken to a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) in Wandsworth, which is run by our Disposal Authority (Western Riverside Waste Authority). Due to their current material specification, we are unable to accept plastic bags in our orange bags or estate recycling bins. However, most supermarkets do now provide plastic bag recycling points, so check at your local store. Alongside plastic bags, you can also recycle other plastic film such as bread bags, wrappers for toilet and kitchen roll and multi-pack wrappings (baked beans, drinks cans etc).

    We are also working to reduce the number of single-use plastic bags in the borough and are about to launch two brand new, reusable ‘Brixton Bags’. Designed by a local artist and local school children, they will be available exclusively through Brixton businesses. Keep your eye on the blog for the latest news.
