Customers whose collections fall on Christmas Day will instead receive a collection on Saturday. The Wednesday, December 26, collection will be moved to the following day, and the same will apply to the Thursday and Friday collections.

Residents who would expect their bins to be collected on January 1, 2, 3 and 4 will find that their collections take place a day later than usual.

Cans, cardboard, garden waste including real Christmas trees, glass jars and bottles, paper, large plastics, scrap metal including metal artificial Christmas trees, textiles, toys and white goods can be deposited for free.

The message is to try and recycle as much as possible but if a tip run is necessary, Smallmead at Island Road, Reading, Berkshire, is open every day except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day. Trees should be placed on the kerbside or by communal bins, for those who use the communal bin service, by 6am on the collection day.
