Christmas recycling

DERBYSHIRE County Council is urging people to recycle their rubbish after Christmas and over the New Year.

Once Christmas is over, real Christmas trees can be put it garden waste bins or taken to a Christmas tree recycling collection point.

Christmas cards can be put in with cardboard recycling as long as they are not decorated or foil-backed.

Wrapping paper can also be put in with paper collections.
