Recycling and Waste

Christmas and New Year recycling and waste collections

There will be no changes to bin collection days over Christmas and New Year. Bins will be collected on your normal collection day (which includes the substitute bank holiday of Tuesday 27 December).

We will also collect your real Christmas tree from the kerbside on your normal blue bin (recycling) collection day between 27 December 2016 and 20 January 2017. Please remove all lights, decorations and pots, as these cannot be composted; trees with these items left on will not be collected. 

You can also drop it off at one of the 12 sites across the city where the trees will be recycled into compost.

If you live in a flat, please do not leave your tree in the bin store, take it to one of the collection points.
