What is BagShare all About:

Reusable bins are beginning to appear in the shopping centre of Lane Cove to assist our community's reliance on plastic bags.  Plastic bags are mostly used when shopping and the bins have been placed in strategic areas to assist our community when:

  • You have forgotten to bring our reusable bags to the shops
  • Need extra bags because you bought more than anticipated
  • Left the reusable bags in the car

See our short video explaining how BagShare works.

See our how to Start Your Own BagShare document.

Locations for the BagShare Bins are as Follows:

- The Atrium under Coles
- Outside Coles
- At the L1 & L2 entrance to Market Square from the car park.
- The IGA at West Lane Cove
- The IGA at Greenwich shop

BagShare launch at IGA Supermarket at Burns Bay Road, Lane Cove West in July 2016

LCSAG launched Bagshare at IGA West Lane Cove

Enthusiastic Lane Cove Sustainability Group members proudly launched Bagshare in July 2016 at IGA Supermarket at Burns Bay Road, West Lane Cove. Support Bagshare by donating your reusable bags to the various bagshare bins located around the Lane Cove shopping centre. A single shopping bag can reduce the use of hundreds of plastic bags that either end up in landfills or in our oceans or our natural environment. You will find also Bag Share bins at the entries to Coles and Woolworth. Ask yourself "do I really need that plastic bag?".

History - In the Beginning:

Have you got spare reuseable shopping bags at Home? Do you sometimes need one on the way home, but don't have one with you? Why not use our Bagshare bin to collect or drop-off bags in the shopping centre.  With the support of Australian Conservation Foundation we will be operating a pilot bagshare scheme with drop off and collection points in the Lower Level of Coles adjacent to the stairs and in the Fruit Shop.

From March 5  we are calling the community to support the Bagshare program by donating reusable bags.  Simply deposit your surplus bags in the bin and take them out when you need them.  The program depends on this virtuous circle and community support.

Bins are currenly located in basement area of Coles ( near the Fruit Shop).
