I only learned about this from the following email.

Dear Mr. Hai

Thank you for your email

Please note that the council has introduced some changes to the delivery of recycling and food waste bags.

Please note the following:

Residents living in high-rise properties (blocks of flats) can collect one year supply of recycling sacks from their local Idea Store. This is available at certain dates and times only.

Please see attached distribution schedule for details.

All other low rise properties will receive a ‘blanket delivery’, with enough sacks to last a whole year.

All ad-hoc deliveries for pink recycling bags and food waste starch liners has been stopped. Residents will no longer be able to request bags via Streetline

To find your nearest Idea store please click on the links below:

http://www.ideastore.co.uk/idea-stores

An outreach team will be at the idea stores to provide advice and information.

You will need to provide proof of your address

All other collection points such as libraries, community centres and one stop shops will no longer stock any bags and starch liners. This will be reviewed in the near future.
For Further information please visit Tower Hamlets website:
