Residents are encouraged to leave their kerbside bins or food caddies out for 48 hours if there are service delays.

Councillor Anne Rendall, Convener of Neighbourhood Services Committee, said: β€œWe encourage residents to recycle their Christmas trees at Dawson Park, one of the city’s recycling centres or through the Council’s Christmas tree uplift service.

β€œAdditionally, we’d urge everyone to remember to recycle Christmas cards, envelopes and wrapping paper in their blue bin after their celebrations.

β€œThis is vitally important in minimising general waste and having a positive impact through recycling.”

Dundee’s Baldovie and Riverside Recycling Centres will be closed to the public on Wednesday 25th & Thursday 26th December 2019 and Wednesday 1st & Thursday 2nd January 2020. The centres will be open 9am to 4:15pm on all other days (last entry 4pm).
