REDCAR and Cleveland Borough Council is issuing recycling information for the festive period.

Christmas catch-up collections will be one day behind the normal collection day during Christmas week, and back to normal the following week.

Christmas cards can be recycled at most of the borough's primary schools, all libraries and all WH Smith's stores, in the first three weeks next month.

Real Christmas trees can be placed in green waste garden bins or taken to any of the borough's community recycling centres.
