There will be no change to your refuse or recycling collection days over Christmas and New Year 2011.

Christmas trees

Christmas tree collections are free and are taken on the same day as your rubbish and recycling. Find your collection day
To have your Christmas tree recycled, please leave it out anytime between January 6-19, 2012, at the front of your property where it can be clearly seen. 

Trees should not be placed on pavements or public footpaths
unless there is no alternative. NOT in piles as in past years!

If you live in blocks of flats please leave your tree near to your refuse bin store, making sure you do not block access.

The trees are shredded and sent for composting. You can also take your tree to Smuggler's Way or Cringle Dock reuse and recycling centres for recycling.


Please recycle all wrapping paper and cards, glass and plastic bottles, jars and cans in your orange sack or orange-lidded recycling bank.
