Dog bins and litter bins throughout the district will be emptied on December 24, 27 and 31.

The spokesman added: “No foil or glittery wrapping paper in your blue-top bins for recycling – do the scrunch test. If you can scrunch it and it doesn’t spring back it doesn’t contain plastic and can be recycled.

“Christmas cards, corrugated cardboard boxes, cardboard tubes and plastic trays can all be recycled in your blue-top bin.”
