Ordering replacement food liners

If you are wanting to order replacement food liners we are currently experiencing delays within our supply chain. The team is working hard to source further stock however, delivery times are unknown at this time. Please continue to leave a bag tied to the handle of your green bin as this will alert the crew to leave some for you once our stock has been replenished.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Disposal of face coverings and personal protective equipment (PPE)

Please put face masks and disposable gloves in the normal waste at home for disposal in your grey bin.

Do not put them in a beige or burgundy recycling bin as they cannot be recycled through conventional recycling facilities.

Thank you - in 2019/20 48% of waste collected in Bolton was recycled. Between April and September 2020 we recycled 50.1%. Keep up the good work!
