Please be aware that there will be changes to bin collections over the festive period and all the information can be found on the council website or from your local office.

There are also things you can do to help reduce the amount of waste going to landfill over this busy time.

As usual, paper, card, cans and plastic bottles/tubs/pots/trays can be placed in your recycling bags or bins. Please remember to rinse out the cans and plastics. Many types of Christmas paper and cards can also be recycled.

Unfortunately anything covered in glitter or foil-based paper cannot be recycled.  If you want to check if the paper is foil, scrunch the paper up. If it springs back, then please put it in the rubbish bin.

Christmas trees can be taken to our household waste and recycling centres for recycling.
