Brown bins and festive trees

Published10th January 2017

Brown bin collections in Ipswich resumed today (Tuesday 10th January) and residents have been asked to put out their real Christmas trees on the relevant collection day over the next fortnight.

The Borough Council suspended brown bin collections over Christmas to concentrate on dry recycling and waste in blue and black bins and the message is: if you have a real festive tree please put it out by 6am on the day your brown bin is to be emptied.

Residents are asked not to leave their trees out days ahead of collection as they could roll over and cause an obstruction.
