Here is some guidance on how you can recycle your extra waste this Christmas.

Wrapping paper, greetings cards and gift tags

You can put these in your recycling bin but please remove as much sticky tape as you can.  Please do not include wrapping paper with foil or glitter or cards with batteries.

Check what else you can recycle from home.


Bottles and cans

Remember to put these in your recycling bin. Check what else you can recycle from home.


Food waste

You can put all food waste in your food waste caddy, including carcasses, bones, seafood shells and nutshells.

More about food waste collections.


Christmas trees

If you have a real Christmas tree you can either plant it to use next year, if it has roots, or recycle it. 

If you want to dispose of a synthetic Christmas tree, please take it to your local community recycling centre.

If you subscribe to our Garden Waste Collection Service, you can put your real Christmas tree out with your other garden waste on a collection date before the end of January.
