Deck the halls - but don't forget to recycle
Swindon Christmas waste collection times + recyling info
And don't forget - 12th night this year is Tuesday 06 January 2015, so make sure your tree and all the decorations are down by then.
What can be recycled
- christmas cards
- old clothes (please put them in a bag and place it in your recycling box)
- Christmas trees
- glass bottles and jars
- plastic Bottles
- large plastic sweet tubs
- the casing around the Christmas pudding
- the plastic tray that once held the turkey
- plastic wrapping from around gifts
- plastic fruit and vegetable containers
And what can't be recycled
crumple a piece in your hand and if it crumples itís foil, and can go into the box. If it expands again, it has plastic in it and has to go in your general waste.
General Waste Collections
There will be no wheelie bin, blue bag or recycle box collections on the 26th and 27th December. If your wheelie bin collection day would have fallen on either day, please see the Council website via the link below to find out when your collection will now be made.
If you've bought a real Christmas tree, you'll probably be glad to have it out of the house by 12th night. Those pine needles can get everywhere!
Simply wrap one of the Council's green waste bags around the base and put it out with your wheelie bin. It will be collected on your bi-weekly general waste day.

The Household Waste and Recycling Centre at Cheney Manor will be open daily from 8.00am-4.30pm with the exception of:
Christmas Day (closed all day)
