Extra waste and recycling
From Monday 21 December 2020 to Friday 8 January 2021 you can put out up to two extra black bags of waste next to your black bin.
You can put out as much extra recycling as you want as long as it is in a recyclable container, for example a cardboard box.
Extra recycling and waste can also be taken to Household Recycling Centres. They are open during the festive period apart from Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day. Covid-19 restrictions are in place to keep you safe.
