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.

Adrian Jervis, Head of Highways, Transport and Recycling, said: "We have heard in good faith that the busiest man at this time of year, Father Christmas, is doing his bit to recycle this Christmas, so we're hoping that households will follow suit to recycle as much as possible this festive period."

"Not only will recycling as much of your Christmas waste as possible ensure that you don't run out of space in your wheelie bins or purple sacks, it also reduces the amount of rubbish we are all sending to landfill."

For details of the household waste and recycling centre Christmas opening times and/or in the event of extreme weather, please keep check our website and social media pages.
