Cambridge City Council is urging city residents to get ready for Christmas – by setting a reminder to put their bins out. Bins will be collected two days later in Christmas week and the following week. For full details, see https://www.cambridge.gov.uk/updates/2017/12/05/christmas-and-new-year-bin-collections.

Real Christmas trees can be collected from your home for a donation to the Arthur Rank Hospice charity, taken to Cherry Hinton Hall car park after Christmas up until Sunday 21 January, or cut up and put in your green bin with the lid fully closed. Please remove all decorations.

Which bin? A guide to recycling your festive fare in Cambridge

  • Christmas cards – put in recycling bin or box
  • Wrapping paper – put in recycling bin or box, except for plastic or foil type giftwrap
  • Crackers – put the cardboard type in recycling bin or box
  • Large sweet or biscuit tins – put in recycling bin or box
  • Real Christmas trees – cut up and put in garden waste bin, or take to Cherry Hinton Hall car park to be shredded for mulch
  • Leftover food – visit www.lovefoodhatewaste.com for lots of ‘rescue recipes’ as well as a portion calculator to help you plan how much to cook. Any inedible food can be wrapped in paper and put in your garden waste bin.
