Christmas and New Year collections

Christmas collections are a little different this year. That's because we now have Simply Weekly Recycling

See below for details, or see the label that we'll put on your bin just before Christmas.

Garden waste and leaves

There will be no garden waste or leaf collections during Christmas and New Year's weeks. Normal collection schedules start again week commencing Monday 8 January.

Christmas week

There will be no refuse collections during Christmas week. Most Christmas waste is recyclable, so this week we will collect recycling only. Refuse starts again next week.

Put these bins out ONLY:

Leave your recycling and refuse out for collection in a clearly visible place at the kerbside by 6.30am on collection day.

Normal collection schedules for all bins re-commence Monday 8 January.

Real Christmas tree recycling

After Christmas we will operate a free real Christmas tree recycling collection for all residents.

Please note this is a fortnightly service, and is for a limited time only. Details of when we will be collecting Christmas trees in your road will be on the your Christmas collections bin label (which we will deliver closer to Christmas). And we will also publish details on our 'Where I Live' webpage closer to Christmas.

Remove all your decorations (baubles, tinsel, etc.) and leave your real Christmas tree in a clearly visible place next to your bins. Don't cut up your tree, it's easier for us to handle whole.
