The Borough Council has issued a reminder that orange recycling bags are provided to residents to provide occasional extra recycling capacity. Recycling should always be placed into the orange lidded bin loose (not in sacks). Orange sacks should only be used for occassional extra recycling once the recycling bin is full. It is harder and more costly for the Borough Council to recycle items placed in sacks and the current usage of orange sacks is not financially sustainable.

Residents with regular excess recycling may be eligible for a larger bin - see https://www.bedford.gov.uk/requestbins
