Additional collection information:
Some days the food and garden waste collections are not running in order to make sure we have enough vehicles to collect the refuse and recycling. This will be collected the following scheduled collection.
Brown bins: Some days these collections are not running as the vehicles are carrying out the refuse or recycling bank holiday catch ups. Residents can put a Christmas Tree out along side their brown bin after the festivities to make up for a non scheduled collection. Check your specific calendar to see if your collection is affected.
Food waste – we advise residents to avoid wasting food as much as possible and get creative with edible leftovers. Where a collection is not happening for a week, to double wrap it and put it out for the next scheduled food waste collection. We discourage putting it in the green bin but if the resident doesn’t have enough space in a caddy then this could be a last resort.
Once the festivities are over and Christmas trees are taken down, they can be recycled at the kerbside for garden waste / brown bin customers, booked in at the Household Recycling Centres (Wingmoor or Hempsted are our closest) or taken to a number of Treecycle local drop off points for recycling. Our garden waste club vehicles will go round and collect the trees from the Treecycle locations.
