Recycling over Christmas

Love Food Hate Waste

Save money - Don’t buy too much food at Christmas. Use leftovers and use your weekly food waste recycling service to recycle what you can’t use.

Cardboard Collection

There is usually a considerable demand on our cardboard recycling service over Christmas. Please put all your cardboard out for recycling, it may be collected by a dedicated vehicle after the recycling vehicle drives through.

Wrapping Paper

Please put wrapping paper out for refuse collection in your wheeled bin or black bags.

Side Waste

Side waste restriction is designed to encourage greater recycling. We recognise that there will be more waste at Christmas. Please recycle all that you can. We will not take enforcement steps based on what you present between December 27th and January 6th.

Garden Waste

There is often less garden waste presented during the winter months. Over Christmas we will focus our collections on recycling and refuse. If you put out garden waste, we will
collect it, however it may not go for composting.

You can take garden waste, including your real Christmas tree, to one of our Household Waste and Recycling Centres for composting.

Household Waste and Recycling Centres

Our recycling centres are open every day with the exception of Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Yearʼs Day.
