Have yourself a green Christmas

Christmas may be the season to be jolly, but it’s also the least eco-friendly time of year, with an additional 30 per cent of waste created each festive season. But you don’t need to be a Grinch to have a Green Christmas.

We've pulled together some top tips to help you reduce, reuse and recycle, so you can spoil yourself and your loved ones without spoiling the planet. Read our Green Christmas guide and help your family enjoy an eco-friendly festive period.

Plus, we've got everything you need to know about recycling right this Christmas all wrapped up on our Christmas recycling page, including bin collection dates, what can be recycled and what to do if you have excess waste. Don’t forget to do Santa’s Scrunch Test on the big day to check if your wrapping paper is recyclable or not (most are).

The Environmental Services department would like to thank you for recycling all that you can during the festive period, and wish you a very Merry Christmas.
