We know that during the festive period many households have more rubbish, but much of this extra waste can be reused or recycled. Please continue to separate your waste and:
- only use your rubbish bin for things that can’t be reused or recycled
- collapse cardboard boxes before putting them in your recycling bin
Reasonable amounts of waste placed next to your bin (2-3 sacks) will be taken over the Christmas and new year period.
Extra cardboard should be bundled with string and placed next to the recycling bin on the day of your next scheduled collection. The bundle must not be taller or wider than the bin itself.
Household Recycling Centre opening hours
Our four Household Recycling Centres (HRC) will be closed on Christmas Day (Monday 25 December) and Boxing Day (Tuesday 26 December). They will be open on all other days.
If you want to visit a HRC you must book a slot.
