Recycling table

Christmas is often a time where people find themselves with extra household waste.

To help our waste crews throughout this period and to manage household waste better, please recycle as much as you can to avoid overflowing bins and side waste.

Please take a look at the Recycle it Right table for a list of what you can recycle and what you can't recycle to avoid contamination

Recycle Now have also provided some great tips to make use of items like envelopes and leftover paper.

    Do you know where your local food bank is?


    Food poverty continues to be a serious issue across the UK despite the economic recovery, as figures published by the Trussell Trust this winter showed the number of people helped by food banks in the first half of the 2014-15 financial year is 38% higher than numbers helped during the same period last year.

    If you still have a lot of Christmas food left over - why not donate it to your local food bank? The Nottingham Community and Voluntary Service has compiled a list of local food banks - click here for further information.

    Clean for the Queen

    Clean for the Queen

    In the run up to The Queen's 90th birthday on 21 April 2016, Keep Britain Tidy are aiming to inspire a million people to take action and enjoy a few hours together litter-picking to make the places where we live more beautiful. For Her and for us all, we want to attack the blight of litter and reclaim our beautiful countryside, our fabulous cities, our world class parks, our wonderful beaches and waterways.

    There will be Clean for The Queen litter blitzes throughout the UK in January, February and March, and the most monumental of all litter clear-ups from Friday 4 to Sunday 6 March 2016.

    In Nottingham, we want to take this opportunity to get people together to take ownership of their neighbourhoods and provide them with the tools and resources to do so.

    Do you have any ideas to encourage people to get involved with community litter picking projects or neighbourhood beautification projects? What would encourage you to take time out to spruce up your neighbourhood? We would love to hear from you!

    Hear the news as it happens!
