Waste and Recycling Events
Community Reassurance Event
Market Square, Hitchin
Friday 19 December, 11am - 1pm
NHDC's Waste Awareness Officers will be available to discuss waste and recycling issues.
Real Christmas tree recycling
Around 250 tonnes of real Christmas trees are thrown out after Christmas in the UK - please remember to recycle yours.
Place your real Christmas tree next to your brown bin for collection. Ensure all decorations, nettings, pots and stands are removed - these items do not compost so your tree will not be collected if these items remain on it.
In partnership with local garden centres, we will also be collecting real Christmas trees at the following locations (during their opening hours) until 19 January 2014:
An event to help residents in North Hertfordshire recycle waste electrical and electronic equipment will take place on Saturday 24 January 2015 at Woodside Car Park, Hitchin, from 9am to 2pm.
Textiles, clothes and shoes can also be taken to this event, which will be taken for either re-use or recycling to NHDC’s textile contractor C-T-R.
If you or your community group are holding an event and would like our waste and recycling team to attend, or for more information of our planned events, please call 01462 474541 or 01462 474596
