This Christmas we are asking residents to think about waste-reducing ways to celebrate. This includes buying a potted tree to reuse year on year instead of a pre-cut tree, or making your own decorations such as salt dough baubles or dried orange garlands, rather than buying plastic ones.
You can see all of the suggestions, as well as information on how to dispose of items such as cardboard, unwanted clothing and broken Christmas lights, on our social media channels. Just follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram
For more information on what can and can’t be recycled at home, or at Recycling Centres, this Christmas, please visit our website.
