With the countdown to Christmas fast approaching Northampton Borough Council and Veolia are reminding residents how to reduce their waste during the festive season.
Seasonal items such as Christmas cards (no foil or glitter), cardboard, wrapping paper (not foil paper), sweet tins and drinks bottles can all be recycled and should be added to your recycling bins and boxes, rather than your black bins or green sacks. More »
Leftover food can be frozen for use on another day and plate scrapings and vegetable peelings recycled in your food caddy. We collect it weekly on your usual collection day.
Large cardboard should be broken up into manageable pieces and placed in your recycling bins or under your recycling boxes. To help with any extra recycling during the Christmas period, additional recyclable items can be presented alongside your boxes and bins in clear sacks or in additional boxes.
Real Christmas trees will be collected on your scheduled garden waste collection day, between 30 December and 10 January. Trees should be cut up into manageable pieces and placed in your garden waste bins, with the lid closed. Residents on sack collection rounds can present their trees besides their recycling boxes and green sacks on their collection day.
Whilst the additional recycling and Christmas tree collections take place, garden waste collections will be suspended from 23 December until 10 January.
Residents are also being made aware that no collections will take place on Christmas Day. Households who usually have their waste and recycling collected on a Wednesday will have their collections moved temporarily to Saturday 28 December. All other collections stay the same.

Northampton Borough Council is consulting with the public over proposals for a Town Council to cover some parts or all of the existing borough.
Three options were put forward in spring this year and these have been shortlisted to two as a result of feedback received from an earlier phase of engagement.
The two options are laid out in a supporting document which anyone wishing to respond should read first. There is also a link to the questionnaire. More »
Anyone can respond to the consultation and market research firm Opinion Research Services is also conducting a residents' telephone survey.
Paper copies of the consultation document and questionnaire are also available in Northampton Borough Council's One-stop Shop, Northampton Central Library and at One Angel Square.
