A recycling centre at West Park in Long Eaton was also full of Christmas rubbish after people flocked to clear their houses of toy boxes, trees and bin bags

One frustrated local told Yorkshire Live: ‘It’s absolutely disgusting, the bins are all full, so people have just dumped at front.

‘Why they couldn’t just go and try the actual recycling centre at Longley (or Google the opening times first) or even drive down to check if Morrisons bins had space, I don’t know.’ 

Another said: ‘Selfish people, taking advantage of the store being closed for two days while hard working staff have a rest, giving them more to do when they go back.

‘Disgusting.’   

Another person said: ‘People should be ashamed of themselves! It annoys the life out of me that the blue bin is so small and only emptied once a month but I wouldn’t dream of dumping it elsewhere for someone else to sort out.’

Sheffield Council is allowing extra waste to be collected alongside normal bin days during the festive period.

Between December 27 and January 22 you can put out up to two bags of extra general waste out next to your bin to be collected.

Any non-recyclable waste can be put into a black bag, tied and then put out for collection next to the black bin.
