Garden waste collections will stop for two weeks over this period as normal. The
last collections will take place on Friday 24 December and they will restart on
Monday 10 January 2022.
Residents can check their waste, recycling and garden waste collection online at
wiltshire.gov.uk/WasteCollectionDays

Household recycling centre (HRC) opening times and dates will change over the
Christmas and New Year period and residents are advised to check online before
visiting an HRC at wiltshire.gov.uk/household-recycling-centres
HRCs that normally open on Fridays will be open on Christmas Eve, 24
December from 10am but will close at 1pm. All HRCs will be closed on Saturday
25, Sunday 26 December and Saturday 1 January 2022. Other than on these
dates, the centres will open as normal on their specified opening days.

Christmas recycling messages:
At Christmas time many of us generate more waste than usual. We would like
everyone to do their bit by recycling as much of their waste as possible.

Our kerbside recycling collection service helps make this easy to do.
In addition to the everyday items people tend to recycle in their blue lidded bin
and black box, people can add items including wrapping paper, providing it
scrunches into a ball*; cardboard packaging, plastic sweet tubs (up to 5 litres),
mince pie foil cases, drinks cans, glass bottles, and Christmas cards without
glitter.

Local charity shops may be happy to receive donations of unwanted
Christmas presents.

It is important that people do not place batteries or electrical items into any of
their bins. These items can cause fires in collection vehicles or at waste
processing and sorting facilities.
These should be disposed of at HRCs instead.

Households with extra recyclable materials such as cans, cardboard and paper
can placed these in suitable alternative containers alongside their bin for
collection. Flatten cardboard and wash and squash plastic bottles and cartons
and put the lids back on as this will help make more room in your blue-lidded bin.

Collection of real Christmas trees:
People who pay to have their garden waste collected can put their real Christmas
tree, alongside their garden waste bin on their first collection in January. We will
collect your tree for composting, or they can support local charities by paying a
small donation to have your tree collected via the Just Helping scheme at
https://charityxmastreecollection.com/.

For information about local recycling centres, recycling Christmas trees,
collection days and advice on how to reduce waste and recycle as much as
possible during the festive period visit www.wiltshire.gov.uk/rubbish-and-
recycling.

*The scrunch test is when you try to squeeze paper into a ball. If it stays in a ball,
it is most likely the wrapping paper is made of paper only. If it does not, it is likely
the paper contains other materials, which means we cannot collect it for
recycling.

Forestery Work – Everleigh Training Area

Starting Monday 8 November until Friday 28 January 2022 (inclusive and including weekends), we will be undertaking forestry harvesting work within the MOD Defence Training Estate woodlands at Everleigh.

The work is necessary to remove dead and dying ash trees infected with Ash Dieback disease and to thin some of the woodland compartments. Thinning is when we remove some of the smaller and poorer quality trees, allowing those that remain to have more space and light to grow. It also opens up the tree canopy to allow more light to reach the forest floor to encourage the growth of woodland plants.Whilst on site, we will also carry out some track repairs and begin reinstatement works.

Until all works have been completed, we ask you to observe and adhere to the warning signs and barriers that will be installed.

These works are being undertaken through the approved Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO)’s Forestry Management Plan, which has been compiled with the approval and consent of Natural England and the Forestry Commission.
