And, the good news is that, despite the information attached to the notification, Cllr Stuart Collins has confirmed that any excess waste left by the landfill bin WILL be collected if the collection date is later than usual.
The system for refuse and recycling collection in Croydon is changing in September…
We held a meeting on the subject. Find the notes and handouts here.
Some of the arrangements have already changed since. e.g. the weekly schedule for bin delivery was advertised part way through the roll-out, and some of what was promised appears not to have taken place, e.g. the surveys of each road so that the right refuse and recycling resources could be delivered to meet the space constraints and access to properties.
Before you put your tree out for collection, please make sure you have removed all decorations, stands and pots. If these have not been removed, your tree may not be collected.
Christmas tree collection points:
Christmas trees can be recycled at the council’s Refuse and Recycling Centres or at specific drop off points across the borough.
Take your real Christmas tree to any collection point betweenSunday 7 January to Sunday 14 January 2018.
Please do not leave your real Christmas tree at a collection point after 14 January as it will be considered to be fly-tipping, for which you can face a penalty. You’ll need to take it to one of the refuse and recycling centres if you miss the deadline.
