Things to remember

  • Leave your rubbish out for collection by 6am on the revised collection day.
  • Leave your rubbish near your front gate, but not on the pavement.
  • Place your food bin with your garden waste at your property boundary for collection.
  • Leave the textile recycling (purple sack) tied up ready with your other dry recycling.
  • To avoid refuse sacks being split open by animals we recommend the use of ordinary domestic dustbins (not wheeled bins).

If you have any queries please call the council's contact centre on 01895 556000.

Recycle your Christmas tree

Christmas trees can be recycled for free as part of the weekly garden waste collection service. 

How to prepare for collection

  • Make sure all decorations have been removed
  • Cut the tree into pieces less than 3 feet
  • Place it next to your garden and food waste

Don't forget:

Wrapping paper and cards (unless they are made of foil) can be recycled in your clear recycling bags. If you are having a post Christmas clear out of unwanted clothes or textiles, use your purple bags.
