What can I recycle

Plastic Bags for Plastics

Plastic bags for plastics

Newport Wastesavers collects recycling material on behalf of Newport City Council from every house in Newport.

Recycling boxes, plastic bags containing plastics and food caddy bags are collected each week.

View the Plastic Bag for Plastics leaflet (pdf)

Using the plastic bags

The bags can be used in addition to the green box, and should be put out weekly for collection at the same time as your recycling.

Only put plastics in the bags – they won’t be collected if they contain other materials

Use the plastic bags for plastic household packaging for recycling only, e.g. yoghurt pots, microwave trays, shampoo bottles.

Please don’t add plastic film such as vacuum wrap or any other materials.

Please wash and squash plastics to save space and tie the bag at the top to stop plastic items blowing onto the street.

Order new boxes or bags

Order new boxes or bags using the online recycling box request form

The plastic bags are no longer automatically replaced.

Order a new roll using the online recycling bag request form, or directly from Wastesavers on (01633) 281281 or
