Over the festive period we collect about 10% more waste than at other times of the year. A lot of it could be recycled.
Put the following items out with your recycling:
- Christmas cards - tear off any sections with ribbons, glitter or bows
- cardboard boxes from packaging, including postal, toy, gift, food and drink boxes
- food and drink cans
- plastic bottles
- empty aerosols
Put in your bin:
- gift wrap - a lot of it contains plastic and can't be recycled
Take to a recycling bank:
To reduce overflows, we'll be laying on more collections at bottle banks over the holidays. If the bottle bank you visit is full, try to find another one nearby or take your bottles home with you - don't leave the banks overflowing.
