East Riding residents are being reminded to recycle their Christmas trees and cards following the festive period.

Real trees that cannot be replanted can be taken to all household waste recycling sites, or left for collection next to your brown bin.

Christmas cards, including those with glitter and other embellishments, can be recycled in your blue bin.

Coun Symon Fraser, who is responsible for the environment at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “I would encourage residents to keep their festive waste to a minimum – there are many easy ways to do it. Let’s maintain our recent record recycling figures!”

Meanwhile, East Riding residents can now sign up to the free text reminder service which will send text messages the night before all bin collections. Details of how to sign up are on the calendars and on the website
