Christmas recycling

How to recycle your Christmas waste.

Christmas cards can be recycled in your green bags with paper and card as long as non-paper parts such as tape and bows are removed. Please don't include cards with glitter or electronics.  

Wrapping paper cannot be recycled. Please place in black bags

Real Christmas trees can be chopped up to fit in your garden waste bags as long as they're not too heavy or taken to your local recycling centre.

Food waste including turkey carcasses, plate scrapings, vegetable peelings and more can be recycled in the food waste bin.
