Opt-In Is our call out recycling service available to all residents of Brighton, Hove and Portslade based on a credit system. You pay £20 up front, we provide you with clear plastic sacks the size of a black bin bag and when you have filled up 2 or more bags with sepatarate recyclable materials, we come and pick them up. Opt-in can be as regular or irregular as you like, your credit account will be debited by £1.59 per bag collected. This is ideal for green minded people who don't live on our GreenBox round and still want to recycle more than the council takes. Call us on 01273 684425 to book yours.   It is important that you follow the guidelines below.
  • Do not over-fill; leave 6 inches at the top of the sack.
  • Aluminium foil, clothing / textiles, drinks cartons and books can be packed into separate carrier bags and placed on top of your large sacks.
  • Once you have at least two filled sacks then please contact Magpie on 01273 684425 or email us to arrange for a pick up.
  • You will be given a collection day. Please make sure that your bags are outside your front door (or some other previously arranged location) by 8.30am.
  • Alternatively we can arrange a regular fortnightly / monthly collection.
  • Empty replacements will be posted through your letterbox, or left in a pre-arranged location.
