Disposal of sandbags

Unused sandbags

If you have space, store them in case you need them again. Alternatively, empty the sand (dig it into the garden, if you have one) and put the empty sack in the household rubbish bin, or take it to a recycling centre.

Used sandbags

Handle the bags with care using gloves and take them to a recycling centre. Bags filled with sand can be placed in the rubble skip. Gel bags should be put in the landfill skip.

Do not put contaminated sand or bags in your household waste collection.
