Recycling your cut Christmas Tree

Once Christmas is over and you've packed away the tinsel, lights and decorations, you may not be sure what to do with your real christmas tree?

Why recycling your real christmas tree is important?

Recyclying your real christmas tree is important because you will ensure it does not go to waste by ending up in landfill.

Your real christmas tree can be used as a fantastic source for mulch, which is used to protect and nurture soil.

How do I recycle my real Christmas Tree?

Most councils advise that the best way to dispose of your real Christmas tree is to use the green bin. If possible, chop the trunk into manageable pieces, otherwise place the tree alongside the bin for collection.

What if I don't have a green bin?

It's best to contact your local council to see if they are organising a Christmas Tree collection.

We will update this page as we find out specific details about pick up's, collection points or other recycling centre's.
