Christmas recycling tips

We all get carried away over the festive period, but there is so much that can be recycled or avoided instead of wasted at Christmas. Just follow those few easy steps:

  1. Love Food, Hate Waste this Christmas, to prevent food waste, save money and better plan your portions, do not panic buy
  2. reuse last year’s Christmas cards as gift tags
  3. use your glass box or bottle banks to recycle glass bottles and jars
  4. Recycle Right this Christmas by putting the correct materials in your green recycling bin, do not use black sacks for your recycling
  5. recycle your real Christmas tree at your local Household Waste Recycling Centre or contact Keech Hospice to find out more about their scheme
