Changes to waste collections over festive period

Collections of household recycling and waste will be changing for three weeks over the Christmas period.

Collections between Tuesday 25 December and Friday 11 January will take place either one or two days later than the usual collection days. Extra waste produced during the change will also be collected.

This Christmas it is easier to recycle more than ever before thanks to a new recycling system introduced across the borough.

You can recycle card and paper packaging but please remember shiny wrapping paper cannot be recycled.

If you have a real Christmas tree you can have it collected for recycling alongside your usual waste collection from Monday 14 January, just remove any decorations and pots or plant holders and leave it by the kerbside.

All changes to bin collections are available on the council website.

“We want to make Croydon the greenest borough in London but we need your help to do it.

“New bins have already been introduced across the entire borough to help boost recycling rates to more than 50% over the next two years.

“Most households will produce more waste over the festive period so please remember to recycle as much as you can.

“If you need to double check your collection day or what you can recycle you can look online.”

Councillor Stuart Collins, deputy leader – Clean Green Croydon
