Collections from Libraries

From Tuesday 06 2021 April, libraries will stock replacement recycling / food bags and containers again.

 

You will need to phone the library in advance to order items and arrange a time to pick them up as stock will be limited and available only on a click and collect basis.  

 

Please do not visit a library without a pre-booked timeslot. If the bag or container you require has a charge, please bring the correct money as library staff are unable to handle change at this time.
