Hambleton residents are being reminded that there is only one more garden waste collection left this year - for those who have subscribed to the service.

There will be a green bin collection in January to accommodate Christmas trees for subscribing residents only. Trees must be chopped up and placed inside the green bin, trees left at the side of bins or protruding from bins will not be collected. This collection will take place either week commencing11 or 18 January depending on your collection week – normal garden waste is accepted during this collection.

Collection dates can be checked on the councils’ website - hambleton.gov.uk  or social media - facebook: Hambleton recycling & waste or  twitter: @recycleHDC.

  • Non subscribing residents will have to dispose of their trees themselves  - trees can be taken to the Household Waste Recycling Centres at Sandholme Lane, Sowerby; Yafforth Road, Northallerton; Leeming Bar Industrial Estate; Stokesley Industrial Estate and Tholthorpe for composting.  The sites are open from 8.30am until 4pm.    They are closed on 25, 26 December and 1 January and every Wednesday.
