Bradford City Council

Any collections due on Boxing Day (Tuesday 26 December) will be collected on Saturday 30th December. All other collections remain the same.

Bradford Council have also put together following recycling tips:

Christmas cards - these can be recycled as long as they have no glitter, foil or beads etc. Some local supermarkets and stores will accept your old Christmas cards for their charities.

Wrapping paper - if it is made with a sparkly or plastic coating it cannot be recycled.

Cardboard packaging - make sure all plastic wrapping and polystyrene is removed.

Baking foil, trays and cases - tin foil from wrapping food, foil trays or cases from minced pies and puddings can all be recycled as long as they are free from food and grease.

Wine bottles, beer bottles and cans - these can go all together in your recycling bin.

Christmas trees - these can be taken to your local household waste recycling centre or chopped up and put in your garden waste bin.

Leeds City Council

Any bins scheduled to be collected on Monday 25 December (Christmas Day!) will be collected on Sunday 24 December.

From Tuesday 26 December, bins will be collected a day later than normal (ie, Tuesday will be collected Wednesday) until normal service is resumed on Monday 8 January.
