Wandsworth Council remind residents to recycle over Christmas

Wandsworth Guardian: Remember to recycle Remember to recycle

Residents are being encouraged to have a green Christmas by taking advantage of the borough's doorstep recycling services over the festive period.

Wrapping paper, Christmas cards and envelopes, drinks cans, glass bottles, jars, juice cartons and plastic bottles can all be placed in recycling sacks – but metallic 'foil' style wrapping paper should not be included.

People living in blocks of flats, who do not have an individual doorstep refuse collection, can also place recycleable items in communal recycling banks on housing estates.

Christmas trees can be recycled free of charge as part of its regular refuse and recycling service. These will all be shredded and turned into compost.

Trees will be collected from front gardens on their refuse and recycling collection days between Thursday, January 2 and Wednesday, January 15.

Residents must not leave trees on pavements or the road.

Residents who live in blocks of flats should leave their trees near to their refuse bin store, making sure they do not block access to the bin store.

There will be no refuse and recycling collections on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

Between Boxing Day and December 27 schedules will run one day later than usual – ie Friday collections will be made on a Saturday.

Services will operate as normal on December 28 and New Years Eve but from January 1 to January 3, schedules will once more run a day later.

The normal timetable will be fully restored on Monday, January 6. Collections are only being made on Saturday’s over the festive period.
