Christmas Refuse Collections

Christmas Refuse Collections

Collection due on Tuesday 25th December 2018 WILL BE COLLECTED a day early on Monday 24th December.

Collection due on Tuesday 1st January 2019 WILL BE COLLECTED on Saturday 5th January 2019.

"Try to minimise the waste created and and recycle as much as you can, perhaps even give some presents that can be reused." More »

Glass, cans, plastic bottles and plastic containers can go in recycling wheelie bins or bags and cardboard packaging can go in recycling boxes. It's important that these items do not go in to food caddies.

Cardboard must be flattened and folded to the approximate size of the recycling box so it fits in the back of the lorries – but polystyrene can't be recycled. We are currently unable to recycle wrapping paper, so please place that in your household waste and not in your recycling box. » Less

The Door - The Christmas Challenge

The Door - The Christmas Challenge

Becca's Story

The Christmas Challenge means your donation to The Door this Christmas will be matched - doubling the impact for young people like Becca.

"Hi, I'm Becca and I'm 16. About a year ago I was finding life really hard. It felt like there was nowhere safe for me. At one point I thought it would probably just be easier if I wasn't around anymore, I even got to the point of trying to take load of pills but I'm glad now that I didn't go through with it. More »

From the moment I met Sally, my mentor we just clicked together. She was like a best friend and a mum and a favourite teacher all rolled into one.It was a relief to know there would be someone who wanted to listen to my story, without bringing their own stuff to the conversation.

The Door and Sally have helped me grow so much and I know there's still work to do but I know that with the help of The Door I can grow even more. I'm even looking forward to it!" » Less
