Collections for shredding will be made between 6 -17 January
The council will once again be offering a free Christmas tree recycling service for properties using the black wheeled bin service.

The council will be aiming to collect all unwanted trees from people’s front gardens on their scheduled refuse and recycling collection days between Monday, January 6 and Friday, January 17.
People should make sure that all decorations, pots and stands have been removed and are being reminded that this free service applies only to real trees not artificial ones.
