Schoolchildren want you to recycle this Christmas

16/12/2016 - Children from Roundhill School in Beeston are helping to spread the Christmas recycling message this year by starring in a special video to help Broxtowe residents recycle more over the festive season.

Year 5 pupils Esme Gale, Judah Thurgood and Thomas Horan, all aged 9, as well as Nicholas Gardiner and Victoria Evans both aged 10 recorded the video which gives local residents their top tips for recycling at Christmas.

Residents throw away up to 30% more waste than they would do at any other time of year at Christmas and the children's top tips include:

  • Bin collections roll forward one day over Christmas - don't forget to check your bin collection calendar over the festive period at

  • Remember you can recycle all your Christmas wrapping paper and cards in the green-lidded recycling bin

  • If you are a garden waste subscriber you can recycle your real Christmas tree in your brown-lidded bin

  • Do you know that you can put up to 4 kerbside glass bags out for recycling? To order more go to 

  • If you have lots of turkey leftover from your Christmas dinner, don't just throw it away, create a delicious turkey curry or pie
