Recycle this Christmas!
Christmas tree recycling sites across the city will be open between Thursday 27 December and Friday 11 January.
Food and drink
Plastic bottles can go straight in your recycling box or bin, washed and squashed. Rinsed drink cans and food tins can also go in your recycling, along with egg boxes, cardboard sleeves for food packaging and all tin biscuit boxes.
Please keep all glass bottles and jars in a separate recycling box or bag so glass doesn’t contaminate the other materials
Wrapping paper, cards and cardboard
Please only recycle wrapping paper - foil or paper and cards covered in glitter can’t be recycled. Flatten any cardboard boxes and paper bags to make space in your recycling bins and boxes.
Household waste recycling centres
You can also take your recycling to a community recycling point or one of the city’s two household recycling centres. The opening times over Christmas and New Year are:
- Christmas Eve - open until 1pm
- Christmas Day and Boxing Day - closed
- Thursday 27 December to Sunday 30 December - open normal hours
- New Years’ Eve - open until 1pm
- New Year's Day - closed
- Wednesday 2 January - reopening as normal
Thank you for recycling!
