Don't forget to recycle your Christmas waste.

Cotswold District Council is reminding residents there's still time to recycle their Christmas waste.

The council installed skips for cardboard before Christmas at the Old Station car park, Cirencester, and the Maugersbury Road car park, Stow-on-the-Wold.

The skips are still in place and can be used for every type of cardboard from Christmas cards to toy and food packaging.

Residents in the Cirencester area have also been receiving a helping hand to recycle their real Christmas trees.

The Council joined forces with Dobbies Garden Centre at Siddington, to turn trees into compost and you can take your trees to Dobbies up until this Sunday (January 14), ready for shredding by the council's contractor next Monday.

Cotswold District Council's Waste Manager Scott Williams said: "Residents who can't make it to the garden centre can take their real trees to the Household Recycling Centre at Fosse Cross or chop them into sections and put them in their green garden waste bins."

Cardboard can also be recycled at the Fosse Cross, six miles north of Cirencester off the A429, and the Household Recycling Centre at Pyke Quarry, two miles west of Horsley on the B4058 Wotton-under-Edge road.
