Waste and recycling over the Christmas and New Year period
Christmas tree recycling
A free recycling service for real (not artificial) Christmas trees is available.
This year, you need to have requested the collection of your Christmas tree if you are not a garden waste subscriber. You can no longer make a request for a Christmas tree collection. We will only pick up your tree if you have made a request (unless you are a garden waste subscriber).
You need to leave your tree out for collection on your allocated collection day. If you have a garden waste subscription, please place your tree next to your green bin for collection on a scheduled collection day between Monday, 9 January and Friday, 3 February.
Your tree must be put out at the front of the property, so it is clearly visible from the road. It must not obstruct the pavement. All lights and decorations must be removed. We need to be able to lift trees safely with two people. If the tree is very large, it must be cut into manageable pieces.
