Christmas tree recycling

Residents, who have already subscribed to the council’s garden waste collection service, will receive an extra green bin collection during the weeks commencing 14 and 21 January 2019 when real Christmas trees can be recycled. Please ensure your real Christmas is sawn / cut down, if required, and placed in your green bin with the lid closed.

You can also compost trees or take them to your nearest Recycling and Household Waste site.
