Christmas tree recycling
If you opt for a real Christmas tree this year, do not forget to take it to one of the council's designated recycling collection points between 2 January to 11 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 before taking it to be recycled.
