Changes to your Christmas Waste and Recycling Collections

As the festive season approaches the last thing we are thinking about is when our recycling and waste collections are taking place.

Veolia, recycling collection contractor is working alongside Telford & Wrekin Council to ensure residents are aware of when their collection day is.

Sarah Maythorne, Community Liaison Officer for Veolia said “Over the next two weeks residents of Telford & Wrekin will be receiving a leaflet under their wheelie bin lid to remind them of their collection days.

 “The leaflet also includes few helpful tips on what we can and cannot recycle this Christmas, such as wrapping paper and how you can cut up your real Christmas tree and put it into your green bin for collection.”

 The Christmas holidays do mean that the day your bin is collected may change. Some collections are earlier this year so please check your calendar or visit

Please also check your collection calendar or our website for the type of containers we will be collecting.
