Festive recycling

Have a green Christmas...
 
Christmas Tree Recycling
Do you need help recycling your real Christmas tree this year? Do you live or work in the CA1, CA2, CA3, CA4 8, CA5 6 or CA5 7 postcode area?
 
Hospice at Home is organising a festive fundraising initiative that not only recycles trees after the festive season but will also raise funds for the local charity.
 
Book your tree collection at www.charityxmastreecollection.com and make a donation of your choice to Hospice at Home. On Monday 8 January the charity team and volunteers will collect the trees and take them to be recycled locally. Just leave the trees in your front garden or outside your property and Hospice at Home will do the rest. For more information about the Charity or the Christmas Tree Collections please visit www.hospiceathome.co.uk
 
Kerbside Recycling collections  
 
Please note that our recycling crews will not be collecting any Christmas wrapping paper this year. 
 
Wrapping paper is often shiny, dyed, laminated, glittery or plastic backed, and cannot be recycled. This also applies to glittery Christmas cards. 
 
Please place wrapping paper and the fronts of glittery cards in your refuse bin or gull-proof sack (or in a refuse sack beside your waste container on your first collection after Christmas if it won’t fit inside). You can recycle the backs of any glittery cards in your paper & card green recycling bag. 
 
Thank you for recycling.
