Remove any bows, ribbons and excess sellotape before putting wrapping paper in to the blue-lidded bins for recycling. Foil and plastic wrapping paper cannot be recycled.

Christmas cards and gift tags can be recycled, just remove the string first.

Artificial Christmas Trees cannot be recycled, but real Christmas trees can be disposed of at the local household waste recycling site, or cut in to pieces and placed in the brown-lidded bin.
