This Sunday 5th January, thanks to volunteers from the Crosspool Forum, who will be outside “Direct Travel” between 10-11.30am, the residents of Crosspool will have the opportunity to recycle their Christmas tree. If you would like to give a contribution, then the suggested donation is £2.
If you can spare an hour or two in the morning to assist with the recycling and with the clear up afterward, your help would be very much appreciated – please come along from 9.45am.
After successfully raising £1,400 for local charities last year, volunteers at Hallamshire Round Table and Riverdale Round Table arranged with Santa for Crosspool to be one of the two routes he would visit before starting his amazing journey delivering Christmas gifts around the world.
The Hallamshire Round Table and Riverdale Round Table are now busy counting up the kind donations collected along the way in support of St Luke’s Hospice, Bluebell Wood Hospice, and Cavendish Cancer Care.

Waste and recycling collection dates over the Christmas Period
Before you put your black, blue and brown bins out over Christmas, check what day Veolia will be coming to empty them – as it might be different over the festive period.
Extra Waste and Recycling
Over the festive period, it is likely that you will produce lots of extra waste, including wrapping paper, Christmas cards, boxes, catalogues, glass and plastic bottles, biscuit/chocolate tins and lots more.
You can place small amounts of extra paper and card, tied in a bundle no bigger than your bin, next to your blue bin for collection.
Between 27th December and 23rd January ONLY they will collect extra tins, cans, and plastic bottles. Just put them inside a tied carrier bag next to your brown bin.
Any glass bottles or jars must be placed inside your brown bin; otherwise, your extra recycling will not be collected.

There is still time to pop along to the GT News, Charisma, Nest, Enhance and the Pet Shop for your copy of the 2020 Crosspool Calendar.
Any money raised will go to help the Crosspool Forum fund local events, improve and promote the well-being of the community.
