Recycling tips

It is expected additional recycling will be created over the festive period, so as a reminder:

  • cardboard and non-foil wrapping paper can go in your blue recycling bin
  • foil based wrapping will need to go in your green waste bin.
  • food waste can be recycled in your brown bin

If you are not sure what bin to put your waste in please use this handy A to Z guide.

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 brown bin. Please make sure it is cut into pieces that are four foot tall or smaller.
