I hope everyone will still try to recycle as much as possible, particularly all the extra wrapping paper and cards that get used at Christmas."The district council is reminding residents to use their kerbside box and bag to recycle:* Wrapping paper and cardboard* Christmas cards* Cans* Glass bottles and jars * Household batteries Householders are also being asked to compost sprouts and other vegetable peelings from their Christmas dinner.
