What can I recycle
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.

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.
Alternatively they are available for collection from the Community Furniture Shop, 52-53 Commercial Road, Pill or the Information Station, Old Station Building, Queensway.
