Lead member for clean and green environment, Tewkesbury Borough Councillor Jim Mason, said: “We see a huge surge in the amount of waste collected from households over Christmas. Of course, it’s better to think carefully and plan ahead in order to reduce waste over the holidays, but for the waste that can’t be reused or passed on, our blue bins and food caddies are there to help you recycle as much of it as possible.”
