Bins at Christmas

With bins stuffed to the brim with wrapping paper and empty bottles of festive fizz it's important that you don't forget when your bins are being collected over the Christmas season.

You can check your Bin Collection Dates using our online tool, to make sure you don't miss that key date.

Don't forget to use the right bin for your Christmas waste:

  • Brown bin - food waste items e.g. left over sprouts, turkey carcass, vegetable peelings, plate scrapings etc.
  • Blue bin - cardboard boxes (flattened), aluminium foil and foil tins
  • Black bin - Christmas cards (supermarkets will often recycle these for you), Christmas gift wrapping paper, bubble wrap

Want to jazz up your black bin waste? They're a bit frivolous but we quite like these Christmas Pudding Bin Bags.
