Christmas recycling tips & info
Real Christmas trees can be chopped up and placed in your green bin for recycling; green bins will be collected as normal.
If you have lots of cardboard, please cut or tear into pieces the size of your blue bag and secure together. Please present at the side of your purple bin.
We cannot take Christmas cards/paper with glitter, plastic or metallic coating.
More info on what you can and can’t recycle here.
Information received from Telford & Wrekin Council:
Collection crews have continued today to catch up with all collection services. They are making good progress in difficult conditions. They aim to have all red top bin collections caught up by the end of this week and only a small margin remaining for the recycling service, to collect on Monday. Then collections should all be up-to-date, weather permitting.
We will continue to keep all updated and the message to residents is still:-
- Please put containers due to be collected out on your usual collection day.
- If crews don’t manage to collect on your scheduled day, please leave your red top bin, purple top bin and your blue bag out in a safe place and they will be collected as soon as possible.
- If your green bin isn’t collected, please take it back in and put it out on your next scheduled collection date.
- Pre-arranged assisted collections will also be undertaken by the crews where possible.
Message received from Telford & Wrekin Council:
Unfortunately recycling and waste collections have been disrupted due to the recent extreme weather conditions
Based on the current weather forecast we are hoping to be collecting recycling and waste today Wednesday 13 December.
While it is our intention to carry out collections from as many properties as possible, due to the severe weather conditions we’ve experienced and remaining snow and ice on the ground, some areas may be inaccessible. We will ensure that collections are made from all properties that have experienced a delay as soon as were are able.
The message that has been actively communicated to customers remains the same:-
Due to the current bad weather it might not be possible for your recycling and waste containers to be collected on the day it is scheduled. If this is the case, please leave your red top bin, purple bin and blue bag out in a safe place and we will collect them as soon as possible. Please take your green bin back in and put it out on your next scheduled collection date”
Once again we thank everyone for their patience and will continue to keep everyone updated.
