Garden waste suspended

The garden waste collection service is suspended from Tuesday 25 December to Tuesday 8 January (inclusive).

Christmas tree recycling

Cut up your real Christmas tree and put into your garden bin. If you do not have access to a garden waste bin, you can recycle real Christmas trees at your nearest household recycling centre (external website).

Extra recycling

We will collect a reasonable amount of extra recyclable material at the kerbside, as long as:

  • it is loose in a re-useable container - we will not collect recyclables in plastic bags
  • it is presented neatly alongside the relevant collection container
  • cardboard boxes are flattened and reduced to a manageable size

We are not responsible or liable for any lost containers used to store extra recycling.

You can also take extra recycling to your nearest recycling centre.
