Christmas tree recycling

Cut up your real Christmas tree and put it into your garden bin. If you do not have access to a garden waste bin, you can recycle real Christmas trees at your nearest household recycling centre (external website).

See our Christmas recycling guide for more information on what you can and can't recycle this festive season.

Extra recycling

We will collect a reasonable amount of extra recyclable material at the kerbside, as long as:

  • it is loose in a re-useable container - we will not collect recyclables in plastic bags
  • it is presented neatly alongside the relevant collection container
  • cardboard boxes are flattened and reduced to a manageable size

We are not responsible or liable for any lost containers used to store extra recycling.

You can also take extra recycling to your nearest recycling centre.
