Christmas waste

 It's Christmas, it's busy... We can help

We have sent you a guide to waste and recycling (2.4 MB) PDF and the changes to our Christmas waste collections

Changes to collection days

Because of the bank holidays there will be changes to your collection day over Christmas

Overflowing recycling bin?

We take extra recycling all year round - but it's very useful at Christmas 

  • Put extra recycling loose in cardboard boxes or in clear plastic bags next to the green bin

  • Too much food waste? Extra can go in a bag on top of the food bin.

  • 80 per cent of houshold rubbish can be recycled so we don't take extra non-recyclables (things that go in the grey bin)

  • Not sure what you can recycle - go to Binzone (or download the app on your phone)

Garden waste and Christmas trees

We don't take garden waste over Christmas, but we'll take away your Christmas tree in the New Year  for recycling if you are a garden waste customer.

If you're not a garden waste customer we'll take them from a Christmas tree collection point - find out your nearest here.

Bad weather

If there's bad weather this might affect the waste collections - look out for messages on facebook and twitter.
