Recycle your real Christmas Tree

Recycle your real Christmas Tree

Real Christmas trees can be recycled into good quality compost or soil conditioner, or into chippings.

You can take them to your local household waste recovery centre during normal site opening times- 8am to 6pm – where they are collected and recycled along with other items of garden waste.

After Christmas, to make it easier to recycle your tree, the County Council have arranged additional collection points across the county. Please ensure that you have deposited your tree there by the end date.
