  • Batsford Garden Centre, Batsford, GL56 9QB (will be taking trees from 6th January)
  • Wyevale Garden Centre, Lechlade, GL7 3DP
  • Commenting on the arrangements, Cllr Sue Coakley, CDC’s Cabinet Member for Environment, said:

 “We anticipate that households will accumulate larger amounts of waste during Christmas and New Year.  I would urge everyone to recycle as much as possible and to make the most of our kerbside recycling services, and recycling facilities across the district. Many large gifts use cardboard packaging and it is worth emphasising that the Ubico crews will only collect folded cardboard at the kerbside.  We also encourage everyone to recycle all the extra bottles that seem to accumulate over the festive season

“For those who like to clear things away very quickly, please note that Household Recycling Centres will be open on most days during the holiday period.  However, please note that both Household Recycling Centres in Cotswold District now close for one day during the week  (Fosse Cross on Tuesdays and Pyke Quarry on Wednesdays). Both will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. The new winter opening hours are 10 am to 4 pm. For more details see www.recycleforgloucestershire.com.

“While we hope to see a big upturn in recycling figures during this period, we realise that there is still going to be a build-up of non-recyclable waste at such a busy time.  For this reason, we will be allowing a ‘side waste amnesty’ for every household’s first full collection after Christmas Day; residents will be able to leave out additional amounts of non-recyclable waste in bin liners next to their grey wheeled bin/beige refuse bags. Please place all containers at the kerbside by 7 am on the revised day of collection so we can ensure that everything is picked up.”
