Seagull Proof Sacks

Gulls are an important part of our natural ecosystem here in Scilly. However we do have a responsibility to make sure our waste is properly contained before it is collected by the Council.
Please help avoid waste being strewn this spring and summer by purchasing one of the Council's reusable seagull proof sacks.

Reuseable seagull proof sacks are now available for delivery. To place an order please email enquiries@scilly.gov.uk or call them up on 0300 1234 105 (option 5). 

  • The sacks are £4.99 (this includes delivery)
  • They are big enough to fit 2-3 sacks of waste/recycling inside
  • ​Velcro fastening, weighted base, and tie so they won't blow away! 


You can also help by:
• Ensuring lids are on your bins
• Not putting waste out for collection too early
(i.e. not the night before)
• Cover waste sacks with old towels, rugs or carpet offcuts work well.
