Councillor Mike Smith, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council's Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport, said: “The Bank Holidays inevitably cause inconvenience but the Care for Your Area team do their best to keep this to a minimum.

“I would encourage residents to recycle where they can. Wrapping paper, boxes, envelopes and cards with glitter can be recycled, along with glass bottles and aluminium cans.”

Recycling boxes and bags are available for free from Customer Service Centres at Stockton Central Library, Thornaby Central Library and Billingham Library.
