This is all part of Ashfield Council’s efforts to assist residents to get rid of their Christmas waste.
On the first general waste collection after Christmas, week commencing December 27, the council will be collecting an additional bag of general waste to help with waste this festive season.
Residents are asked to leave the extra bag alongside their red-lidded bin.
Coun Lee Waters said, “This is all part of the council’s efforts to help residents get rid of their Christmas waste.
“Throughout Covid, the council has done everything possible to help residents get rid of their waste.
“We were the only council in Nottinghamshire to have maintained a full bin collection services throughout successive lockdowns.
“We also enhanced our services with the Big Ashfield Spring Clean – offering free bulky waste collections and sent extra bin lorries across Hucknall to collect rubbish.
“We are proud as a council to be continuing to help residents.
“We all know what it’s like with extra rubbish at Christmas, with extra wrapping paper and boxes, so please take advantage of this scheme.
“We are only one of the only councils in the country to offer this service, but helping residents like this at Christmas is as traditional for us as turkey and cranberry sauce.”
