All households who have a Wednesday or Thursday collection will get a tag on their bin in early December to inform them of the above.

There will be no green bin collections during weeks commencing 23 December and 30 December.

It is expected additional recycling will be created over the festive period. Cardboard and non-foil wrapping paper can go in your blue recycling bin. Foil based wrapping will need to go in your black waste bin.

If you are not sure what bin to put your waste in please use our A-Z directory.

As usual after the festive period you can dispose of your real Christmas trees, minus the decorations of course, by placing it in or next to your green bin. Please make sure it is cut into pieces that are 4 foot tall or smaller.
