Christmas and New Year Collections

Information and guidance for waste and recycling collections this Christmas and New Year period


Temporary lift on Black Bag Restrictions 

We recognise that we all produce a lot more waste and recycling this time of year, so, as promised, from Monday 24 December 2018 - Friday 11 January 2019 the restriction to 2 black bags per household will not apply.


The 2 black bags restriction will resume from Monday 14 January 2019


Christmas Tree Recycling

Monday 14 January - Friday 18 January 2019

We will be collecting real Christmas Trees on your normal collection day the week commencing Monday 14 January 2019.


Simply place your tree out for collection alongside your recycling before 7.00am


You can also place any cut off branches and loose pine needles in your garden waste bags and place at the kerbside for collection. 


Collections will be taking place throughout the day and early evening by a dedicated vehicle on your normal collection day. 


If you miss your collection day, Christmas trees can also be taken to both our Household Waste Recycling Centres.


Please note:

  • Only real trees are able to be collected for recycling

  • All decorations and soil will need to be removed

  • If longer than 6 foot, please cut down to this size

  • Trees need to be placed out for collection before 7.00am
