Christmas tree recycling
If you opt for a real Christmas tree this year, don't forget to take it to one of the Council's designated recycling collection points between 2 January and 13 January 2013.
At other times, Christmas trees can be taken to any of the reuse and recycling centres - but please remember to remove all tinsel and decorations.
