Please remember to recycle your paper wrapping, cardboard boxes and recyclable packaging from all those presents!

Don’t forget to use your food recycling caddy for all your cooked and uncooked Christmas food waste.

Food waste is collected separately from the refuse/recycling bin. This may be considerably earlier or later than when your wheeled bin is emptied.

Please place your bin out for collection by 7am.

Please note there are no garden waste collections between 22 Dec – 6 Jan.
