Between 24 December and 4 January there will be no garden waste collections. They will continue as normal following Monday 7 January.

Recycling sites will follow their usual schedules but they will all be closed on 25-26 December and 1 January. They will also close at 4pm on Monday 24 and 31 December.

Christmas trees can be home composted or taken to a recycling site. If you have a garden waste subscription, undecorated trees under 6ft can be collected on your usual garden waste collection day from 7 January, or locate a local charity shredding/collection group. If you are unable to avoid sending your tree to landfill, place it beside your rubbish bin on your usual collection day 7-18 January 2019.
