Extra vehicles will be on hand to help collect recycling over Christmas and New Year, and the council is asking residents to follow a few simple steps to help keep collections moving over the festive period and manage the huge volume of extra recycling produced:

· Put out a smaller amount of recycling every week throughout January, try not to put everything out in one go immediately after the festivities.

· Make use of the Household Waste Recycling Centres for your extra waste and recycling, and remember to visit the ‘Revive’ reuse shop at Brighouse Household Waste Recycling Centre, to donate any unwanted items.

· Squash plastics and cans, then seal in your white sack with the Velcro flap to keep it secure.
