If we are unable to collect from you on the dates shown above, please leave your bins and boxes out until they are emptied. We will get to you as soon as possible.

What can I recycle at Christmas?

Cards and wrapping - You can recycle your plain cards and paper based wrapping with your cardboard in your green recycling box. Shiny plastic wrapping must be put in your black bin.

Aluminium Foil - You can now recycle your clean foil mince pie cases, kitchen foil and foil lids from cream tubs in your black recycling box. Some other Christmas waste looks like foil but it’s not! We don’t collect crisp packets, sweet wrappers and shiny plastic gift wrap. Please put these in your black bin.

Cardboard - Too much cardboard to fit in your green recycling box? Fold, flatten or tear larger boxes to fit in your green box. Remember we collect recycling every week so you can put it out over a couple of collections.  Large amounts of cardboard can be taken to your nearest recycling bank.

Food waste - Recycle all your veg peelings and food scraps in your food waste container and we’ll collect it weekly. Don’t waste your leftovers, check out recipe ideas at lovefoodhatewaste.com

Real Christmas Trees Our FREE Christmas tree recycling points will be back across the District in January 19. The dates and locations are listed on our website.

 You can now recycle foil in your black recycling box!       

 The following items will now be accepted for recycling;

 Foil containers including ready meal trays, quiche & pie cases, take away trays and pet food trays.

Foil lids including such as those found on some yoghurt and cream tubs and pet food trays. Please rinse off any food residue.

Kitchen foil, please don’t include any foil that has lots of baked on food or is very greasy.

Not sure if its foil? Do the scrunch test!

Scrunch the pack or foil in your hand. If it stays scrunched it’s foil and can be recycled. If it springs open then its plastic film and cannot be recycled.

No thanks - Some things look like foil but are plastic such as crisp packets, drink, baby and pet food pouches, shiny ‘foil’ gift wrap. Please put these in your black bin
