Our waste collection team from Medway Norse has some Christmas and New Year recycling tips:

  • Christmas trees: leave any real trees next to your brown bin for collection from Monday 4 January 2021.
  • wrapping paper and Christmas cards: if it’s made from paper, it’s recyclable - pop it in your blue re-useable bag. Foil paper cannot be recycled
  • bottles and cans: put these in your white reusable bag or a clear sack
  • online shopping: flatten cardboard boxes to make them easier to recycle and then put them in your blue reusable bag
  • decorations: bows and foil ribbon cannot be recycled - try to use material ribbon which you can keep and use next year
  • food leftovers: use up your festive leftovers to prevent food waste. Get inspiration by visiting the Hubub website
