HILLINGDON is relaunching its automatic recycling bag delivery service, to make it more efficient and sustainable.

From Tuesday April 2, residents will need to re-register for the council scheme.

Or, if they’re not yet on board, they will be encouraged to sign up for free delivery of dry, mixed recycling bags and food waste bags (caddy liners).

Registering for the scheme is quick and easy. You will be asked how many people live in your property and how many bags of recycling you produce in a typical week, so your subscription can be tailored to your needs.

Under the revised scheme, you will receive your bags in one delivery for the year, instead of every four months. The first deliveries following the relaunch will begin in June.

Re-register or sign up at least one month ahead of your scheduled delivery – you can check this at www.hillingdon.gov.uk/automatic-bag-deliveries

The subscription scheme makes it easier for residents to get their free bags without having to remember to re-order them each time they run out or having to visit the library to collect replacement rolls.

Cllr Eddie Lavery, Cabinet Member for Residents’ Services, said: “We introduced this free delivery service for residents more than a decade ago.

“We now need to adapt it to fit today’s world and keep our commitment of creating a greener future.”  

Once subscribed, you will be contacted annually by email to review your subscription.
