Here are some festive items you can’t put in your recycle bin…
Christmas crackers, shiny, glittery or metallic wrapping paper, shiny, glittery or metallic cards and also batteries. There are some items such as electrical items that can be taken to your local recycling centre. Please check the Nottinghamshire Recycle Centres website for more information.
Mince pie (or any pie) foil wrappers and plastic food trays (including takeaway boxes) can’t be put in your recycling bin and have to go into your waste bin instead.
Tinsel, fairy lights and CDs or DVDs can’t be put in the recycling bin either. Some electricals such as fairy lights can be taken to recycling centres so please check these as an option, online, before taking them.
What is Recyclable in Broxtowe?
This Christmas you can make a difference to our environment by recycling as much as possible.
Recycle your real Christmas Tree
Residents who have subscribed to the garden waste subscription can also recycle their real Christmas trees through the brown bin scheme. Please see our website for further information.
If your tree is a real tree and potted, you may even want to put it in your garden, after Christmas, still in the pot, so it can live until next Christmas and be decorated again!
Reducing Food Waste
Christmas is a great time to indulge in festive meals and treats. We can all play a part in reducing food waste this season by following leftover recipes or keeping leftover meals for the next day.
Veolia have a great selection of recipes using leftovers, to try.
