How to have a green Christmas:

  • Use your green bags for your plastic and cardboard - in separate bags (no glittery cards please).
  • Use your green box for your cans, glass and paper (no foil wrapping paper please).
  • You can recycle your real Christmas tree using your garden waste bin or at the Household Waste Recycling Centre on Rome Street, Carlisle (open 8am-6pm every day) or Townfoot Industrial Estate, Brampton (10am-6pm every day except Tuesdays). Please note that both sites will be closed from 4pm on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, plus all day on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Please remember to remove the decorations first.
  • Make room for this season’s latest trends by clearing out your wardrobe and taking unwanted clothes to the textile collection point at bring-sites and supermarket car parks or your local charity shop.
  • Books and shoes can be recycled at most supermarket recycling facilities.
  • Make a New Year’s resolution that you can keep this year and promise to recycle.
  • Start your own compost heap with your vegetable peelings from Christmas dinner and by next Christmas, you will have nutritious compost to help make your garden bloom. Visit www.cumbria.getcomposting.com
  • To make room for your children’s new toys, take last year’s to a local youth club or to the charity shop where they will be given a good home.
