Excess rubbish and items that won’t fit in bins should be taken to Chalvey Household Waste and Recycling Centre, which will be open from 9am-5pm every day except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
Residents are reminded to recycle as much as they can over the festive period – Christmas cards, wrapping paper, cardboard packaging and boxes, glass bottles and jars, plastic bottles, food and drink cans.
Put items for recycling in your red bin or take it to the household waste and recycling centre.
Real Christmas tree recycling service
If you’ve got a real Christmas tree this year and you can’t compost it (the most environmentally conscious way to dispose of it) or take it to the household waste and recycling centre, a real tree collection service is available to Slough residents between 7 and 16 January 2015.
To book a Christmas tree collection, contact Amey on 0800 634 6301 three working days before your scheduled collection day. The tree will be collected on the same day (but not necessarily at the same time) as your scheduled waste and recycling collections (see revised timetable above). Then please put the tree out next to your wheeled bins by 7am.
Make sure all decorations, tree stands, soil, pots and netting have been removed because these cannot be composted. Please cut larger trees in half to make it more manageable.
