Swindon householders are being reminded of special January recycling collections.

For January only, people who have extra recycling which won't fit into recycling boxes are able to use other sturdy containers from their homes.

The council explains on its website: "The containers don't need to be council-branded, however we’d ask that you help our crews by grouping paper and card together in one container, and glass, metals and aerosols together in another container.

"Larger pieces of cardboard must be broken down into manageable pieces and bundled neatly next to recycling boxes ready for collection.

"Help our crews by sorting your recycling this January. Put paper and cardboard in one box and glass, metals and aerosols in the other."
