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

For a full guide on what you can put in what bin, see our guide to bins page

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