Between the family Christmas feasts and the New Year's indulgences, the holidays can push the limit of what a wheelie bin can do.

To make the clean-up as painless as possible, it might be wise to note when your bins will be emptied over the festive period.

Local authorities have also advised that residents make an effort wherever possible to recycle - Christmas cards, wrapping paper, gift bags, cardboard boxes, bottles and cans can all be recycled.

If the appropriate wheelie bin won't hold enough, there are also recylcing facilities across Dundee and Pethshire which are open through most of the festive period. You can find full details on your council's website.
