Don’t forget to recycle your wrapping paper, Christmas cards and sweet tins in your blue bin once all the festivities are over.
Wrapping paper can be recycled in your blue bin, providing it is paper based (not plastic or foil - check to see if it tears like paper) and is mostly free from sticky tape.
