Rutland County Council urges residents: Recycle responsibly this Christmas
Rutland County Council is encouraging residents to cut down on festive waste and recycle responsibly over the Christmas and New Year period.
Christmas is when Rutland generates the most waste. Throughout the year, people living in the county produce around 850 tonnes of waste a month. However, this rises to nearly a thousand tonnes a month in December and January, when food and presents create lots of extra rubbish and recycling.
Rutland County Council has once again launched a festive waste guide on its website, where you can find a range of useful tips, including how to reuse leftovers, what to do with wrapping paper and where to dispose of Christmas trees: www.rutland.gov.uk/festivewaste.
