Christmas tree recycling

Help us to grow more trees throughout the district by joining our Christmas tree recycling scheme!

Council Christmas tree collections

We can save your car by collecting your Christmas tree for recycling. It costs £5 and you can book a collection online or by calling customer services on 01636 650000.

Old trees will need to be accessible near to the edge of the property (but not on the highway). We cannot give an exact date for collection but will come as soon as we can after 4 January.

All proceeds will be used to pay for planting trees, whips and saplings around the district.

Trees collected are recycled.

This collection is only for real Christmas trees. We do not take artificial Christmas trees.

Garden recycling service

If you pay for a garden waste collection service you can put your tree in your garden waste bin for recycling.
