Christmas and New Year collections

Watch our Christmas recycling video.

Garden waste and leaves

There will be no garden waste or leaf collections during Christmas or New Year's weeks (weeks commencing Monday 26 December and Monday 2 January).  Normal collection schedules will resume thereafter.

All other collections

All other recycling and refuse collections will be as follows.  As usual, we will be putting a label on your refuse bin before Christmas as a reminder of these dates:

Leave your recycling and refuse out for collection in a clearly visible place at the edge of your property by 6.30am on collection day.

Real Christmas tree recycling

From Monday 9 January we will operate a free real Christmas tree recycling collection for all residents.  Collections will take place on your normal refuse (green bin) collection days during weeks commencing Monday 9 to Monday 30 January inclusive.  Check your collection day.

Leave your real Christmas tree (all decorations removed) in a clearly visible place next to your refuse bin and we will collect it separately for recycling.  Don't cut up your tree, it's easier for us to handle whole.

2017 collection calendars

As usual, we will be delivering 2017 collection calendars to all houses during November and December.
