Christmas tree recycling

Remember, you can recycle your Christmas tree when you take down your decorations. You could even go that one step further and reuse your tree next year by re-potting or replanting it.

There are a number of ways residents can recycle their tree.

Trees can be taken to your local community recycling centre or to a local garden centre that offers a recycling option. Please check with the garden centre before making your trip.

Some local councils have also arranged drop off points for Christmas trees to be recycled. Please see their website for further information.

If you’re a garden waste subscriber then your tree can be chopped down to fit into your garden waste bin for collection. Please check the service update pages for the latest updates on collections.

Please note, we can only accept real Christmas trees! And of course, please ensure all decorations and lights are removed from the tree prior to recycling.
