Garden waste collection is suspended until 18th Jan. Christmas trees can then be recycled as garden waste if cut up, and placed inside the bin or left by the side.
Extra recycling can be taken. WODC state:
“We will recycle all your extras like biscuit and sweet tins, Christmas crackers and cards. We cannot accept foiled wrapping paper or glittered cards as these cannot be recycled.
“Just put your extra recycling out in clear open bags. Please keep your glass, glass bottles and jars separate in your recycling box.
“If you can't fit cardboard in your recycling bin you can break this down into A3 sized pieces and leave this next to your recycling bin for collection.”
