There will be no changes to rubbish
and recycling collections this year as Christmas Day and Boxing Day fall
on a Saturday and Sunday. Rubbish and recycling will be collected as
usual on the bank holidays of 27 and 28 December 2021 and 3 January
This information is also included in the annual service leaflet, which
is being delivered to every home in Cornwall in time for
Christmas tree collections
After Christmas, there will be a collection of non-artificial Christmas trees up to 6ft tall. Residents should cut their
tree in two if larger than 6ft. The trees will be shredded and
People with subscriptions to Cornwall Council’s garden waste service
should put their real Christmas tree out on their normal garden waste
collection day. People who don’t have a garden waste subscription
should put their tree out on their rubbish collection day between
Monday 10 January and Friday 14 January 2022.
People can also take their real Christmas trees to their nearest
Household Waste and Recycling Centre. Decorations and pots should be
removed before trees are recycled.
Household Waste and Recycling Centres
Household Waste and Recycling Centres will
be open 9am to 4pm throughout the festive period except for Christmas
Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
Please increase recycling by sorting items before you get to the centre, including wood, plastic,
electricals, garden waste, drinks cartons and batteries.
