Residents in Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton are being reminded to recycling unwanted wrapping paper and their left-over Christmas food this year.

According to East Devon District Council (EDDC), wrapping paper can be recycled in the same way normal paper can as long as its ‘not glittery or shiny metallic’.

The blue food waste caddy can also come in handy for those uneaten spouts and left-over turkey.

Councillor Tom Wright, EDDC portfolio holder for the environment, said: “Households are already receiving our special bin hangers which give them the Christmas and New Year collection dates and I would urge residents to read the information carefully, use the correct containers and recycle as much as you can.”

The council has also announced where and when people can recycle their ‘real’ Christmas trees.

Recycling events are being held at the Imperial Road car park on Monday, January 7, between 8.30am and 2pm as well as in Lime Kiln Car Park, Budleigh Salterton, on Tuesday, January 8, between and 11.30pm.
