More than five million blue waste bags will be out for delivery from Wokingham Borough Council next week.
They will be distributed to all houses in the borough over the next five weeks, with each household receiving 80 bags in two rolls of 40. This will cover the period between April 2020 and March 2021. Blue bags were first introduced back in 2012 to restrict the volume of waste per household to approximately 120 litres per week.

The size and quality of the bags remains the same. The Council can only collect waste in these council branded bags. Waste collections will continue to be on a weekly basis and the number of bags each household receives will not reduce.
There have been slight changes to the blue bag scheme this year, as larger families who used to automatically receive extra bags will no longer do so. Since the scheme was launched in 2012 we have increased our recycling options to include additional plastic containers, tetrapak and food waste so many residents may no longer require the additional supply.
