Bin collection day finder

Christmas tree collections

We'll collect your Christmas tree in January on one day only.

To find out when we'll collect your Christmas tree, search on the bin collection day finder and download the collection calendar for your property.

Put the tree out on the day itself, not before.

We only collect real trees.

Cards

You can recycle Christmas cards. Put them in your green recycling box.

Wrapping paper

We can't recycle wrapping paper because most of it is foil or plastic backed. Put it in your black wheelie bin or consider reusing it. 

Fairy lights

You can recycle fairy lights. Put them in a clear bag next to your black recycling box. 

Batteries

You can recycle batteries. Put them in a clear bag in your black recycling box.
