New rubbish, recycling and garden waste collection calendars for 2022 will be available to download online from Wednesday 1 December on the Wealden District Council website.

Councillor Roy Galley, Wealden Portfolio Holder for Waste Management, said, “Many households produce extra waste over Christmas, but much of it can be recycled using your kerbside collection service.

“Remember that you can recycle wrapping paper and Christmas cards (no foil or glitter please), cardboard, paper, plastic containers, cans, aluminium foil, glass bottles and jars.

“Just make sure any plastic trays, bottles and jars are washed clean and free of food. Additional recycling can be presented alongside your recycling bin in non-black bags, except for glass, which needs to be put into the recycling bin.

“If you subscribe to the garden waste service, you can recycle your real Christmas tree by cutting it up and placing it inside the brown bin with the lid closed.

“Alternatively, you can take your real tree to your local Household Waste Recycling Site for recycling. Thank you to everyone in Wealden for continuing to recycle.”
