With collections scheduled throughout the festive period, we are encouraging households to make use of the service and reduce, reuse and recycle as much of their household waste as possible.

Cllr Heulwen Hulme, Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling, said: "Christmas is a busy time of year for us all, but it is really important to remember to recycle as much as possible over the festive period.

"Each one of us generates a huge amount more waste than normal over Christmas and New Year, but luckily most of it can be recycled - tin foil, food, glass jars and bottles, real Christmas trees, plain Christmas cards and wrapping paper, batteries, plastic pots and bottles - we can all do our bit to make sure as much as possible is recycled.

"Its great news that we have arranged for the minimum amount of disruption to our normal collections this year, with only the rounds falling on Christmas Day and New Year's Day being rescheduled, so please remember to put all of your recycling out to be collected."

Please check our website for details of the household waste recycling centre Christmas opening times and keep an eye on our social media pages for any service changes needed as a result of extreme winter weather.
