Recycle your Christmas tree

We have some updated information for residents on how they can dispose of their real Christmas tree, if they decide to buy one this year.

Many households enjoy the colour and style of a real Christmas tree but what to do after the festive period is over? If you buy a real tree then it is up to you to dispose of it responsibly.

If your tree has roots of course you can choose to plant it in the garden. However, most trees tend to be sold as cut so in that case there are a couple of alternatives.

Please note there will be no Christmas tree drop off points this year, therefore for most people the simplest solution is to take it to your nearest household waste and recycling site where it will be accepted.

For residents in the District who have a garden waste subscription you can put it in your garden waste bin and it will be collected on the first garden waste collection day after Christmas.

Remember the tree must be fully in the garden waste bin with the lid closed to ensure it's collected.
