Real Christmas tree recycling

Christmas Tree without decorations

If you receive a garden recycling collection and would like us to collect and compost your Christmas Tree, please put it out for collection with your garden waste on your usual collection day. Please remove all decorations, pots and turf from your tree as these cannot be recycled. If your tree is taller than 6ft, please take it to one of the parks listed below, or cut into smaller pieces as it cannot be collected otherwise.

Until Sunday 11 January 2015 trees can also be taken to: Pymmes Park, Bush Hill Park, Bury Lodge Gardens, Town Park, Jubilee Park, Albany Park, Arnos Park, Durants Park, Broomfield Park, Tottenhall Sports Ground, Oakwood Park, Grovelands Park and Trent Park. Trees to be left inside park gate for collection by park staff.

Trees can be taken to Barrowell Green Recycling Centre after this date.

Recycle more at Christmas

Items such as greeting cards and envelopes, empty gift boxes (remove all packaging), drink bottles and food jars, wrapping paper (paper based only), food tins and soft drink cans, sweet tins, biscuit tubs and other plastic food packaging are all perfect for recycling and should be put into your bin or sack for collection. Unfortunately tree lights, decorations and plastic trees cannot be recycled. Why not be really green and use them again next year or if in good condition take to your local charity shop?
