Local Christmas Trees Recycled

The weather was fine and kind for yesterday’s Crosspool Forum Community Christmas tree recycling event outside Direct Travel.

Christmas Tree Recycling 2021

The Forum Volunteer Marshalls efficiently  helped ensure that everything ran smoothly and thanked everyone for their cooperation  with  the request  to wear a Face Covering, observe Social Distancing, waiting  patiently in the one-way queue to Drop off  a Christmas Tree and  for not  hanging around  or  gathering Socially. Everyone’s support and willingness to help everybody keep safe during the tree recycling was really appreciated.

Every recycled Christmas tree helped protect the environment, providing chippings to be used locally as Mulch in the flower beds and woodland areas of Lydgate green. 

Social Distance Queuing

The Crosspool Forum was extremely grateful for everyone’s understanding of the strict safety guidelines which had been taken to keep safe our Community Volunteers and attendees during these unprecedented times and everyone  for getting rid of their Christmas tree in the most environmentally-friendly way.

Garden Waste Alert

Garden Waste (green bin) Service Suspended

Due to the impact of the Coronavirus on staffing levels, all green bin (garden waste) collections have been suspended until further notice.

Residents are advised to keep their green bin on their property (not on the pavement) and where possible, store their garden waste at home until collections restart.

Once the full impact of the Coronavirus on the green bin service is known, customers will be informed of arrangements to rectify any collections missed.

Black bin and recycling collections are operating as normal.

HWRC Opening Times

Opening hours of Sheffield’s five “Household Waste Recycling Centres,” will continue to be, 9am to 5pm, 7 days a week.

In order to ensure the safety of staff and the public during the COVID-19 Pandemic, social distancing measures continue to be in place, limiting the number of vehicles allowed on site at any one time.  The demand for the sites combined with the vehicle limits has resulted in significant queues. By continuing to remain open 7 days a week, allows more people to visit and should reduce queuing times.
