After a wonderful and busy Christmas, its item to clear up the house and get ready for the New Year. Clearing up does not necessarily mean binning everything you don’t need, but recycling anything that can be recycled.
Leftover food – over the Christmas an estimated 10 million turkeys, 370 million mince pies and 25 million Christmas puddings will be taken home, and on average about one quarter of this will be thrown in the bin. This is the best time to become a creative chef and find ways of cooking up something special with leftover food.
Christmas trees – can be taken to any one of the collection points across the Borough or the recycling centre or be left outside the house for collection.
Christmas cards – you received loads of cards but have no space or intention to keep them. Don’t just bin them recycle them with your household cardboard recycling, it could be a wheelie bin or a green box.
