Christmas and New Year collections

Some collections are different over Christmas and New Year - see below for details of any collection days changes, and what to put out each week over the festive period.

Real Christmas tree recycling

In January we offer free real Christmas tree recycling for all residents. This is a fortnightly service - check your Christmas bin label for details of when real Christmas tree collections happen in your road.

Remove all decorations and leave your real Christmas tree next to your bins on your real Christmas tree recycling day. Don't cut up your tree - it's easier for us to collect whole.
