Recycling sites follow usual schedules, except all sites close at
4pm on Monday 24 and 31 December. All sites closed 25-26
December and 1 January.
Christmas trees - either: home compost, or take to a recycling
site or, if you have a garden waste subscription, undecorated
trees under 6ft can go out for collection on your usual garden
waste collection day from 7 January, or look for local charity
shredding/collections. (Last resort: send tree to costly, wasteful,
polluting landfill. Place next to your rubbish bin on your usual
collection day 7-18 January 2019).
