Cllr Parry Batth, executive member for environment and leisure, said: “These small changes to our schedules mean our waste teams can spend some time at Christmas having some well-earned rest with their families.
“The festive season is a time when residents really can make the most of our range of recycling services, making sure all food peelings and offcuts go into their caddies to be turned into energy or breaking down cardboard boxes and keeping them dry so they can be recycled. We’ve put together some easy tips for residents to help them do their bit.”
Longshot Lane, Bracknell, and Smallmead, Reading, recycling centres will be open for most of the Christmas period, with the only changes being closure on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day, as well as shutting early at 4pm, rather than 8pm, on Christmas Eve. Residents are required to book if they are visiting, using the click and tip service.
