What can I recycle at Christmas?
Cards and wrapping
You can recycle your plain cards and paper based wrapping with your cardboard in your green recycling box. Shiny plastic wrapping must be put in your black bin.
You can now recycle your clean foil mince pie cases, kitchen foil and foil lids from cream tubs in your black recycling box. Some other Christmas waste looks like foil but it’s not! We don’t collect crisp packets, sweet wrappers and shiny plastic gift wrap. Please put these in your black bin.
Too much cardboard to fit in your green recycling box? Fold, flatten or tear larger boxes to fit in your green box. Remember recycling is collected every week so you can put it out over a couple of collections. Large amounts of cardboard can be taken to our nearest recycling bank at Exton Road Recycling Centre.
Recycle all your veg peelings and food scraps in your food waste container and we’ll collect it weekly. Don’t waste your leftovers, check out recipe ideas at lovefoodhatewaste.com
Real Christmas Trees
Our FREE Christmas tree recycling points will be back across the District in January 19. The dates and locations are listed on the Teignbridge District Council Website.
