We understand that you might have more food waste over the Christmas period, so during this time you can put food waste in your black rubbish bin if your outdoor food bin is full.

If you run out of biodegradable bags, you can buy more from your local supermarket or wrap your waste in newspaper. Remember that you can’t put carrier bags or black bin liners in your food bin.

Find out where to recycle your real Christmas tree in January.

Your normal service will resume the week beginning 8 January 2018.
