  • Collections start earlier at 5.30am on Tuesday 27 December, Saturday 31 December and Monday 2 January - put out your waste the night before
  • Garden waste collections follow the above schedule
  • Christmas trees can be put out for garden waste collections - cut it up and then place in your brown bin or garden sacks
  • Metallic wrapping paper and cards with glitter go in blue bags, not recycling
  • Leftover food can be turned into new meals, if you can't eat it all put it into your food waste container so it can be recycled
