Make sure you don’t have an overflowing bin this Christmas and new year by knowing the right day to put the rubbish and recycling out.

Because it’s Christmas, there’s no need to argue about whose turn it is to wheel out the bin (possibly in your dressing gown). In the spirit of Christmas, just make it your turn.

With the mountain of presents comes a mountain of wrapping paper too. Plus foil from the turkey, the mince pie foil trays and the many sweet wrappers from the big tubs of chocolates you have feasted on while watching a Christmas Day film.

It’s worth checking what you can and cannot recycle and make wrapping paper choices that are kinder to the environment.

To make life a little easier this festive season, SurreyLive has compiled a list of all the recycling and rubbish dates this December and January so you can be prepared. Merry Christmas, everyone!
