Real Christmas Tree Recycling
If you are celebrating Christmas this year with a real Christmas Tree, did you know you can recycle it in the New Year? Once the festivities are over and the decorations have been taken down, you can take your real Christmas tree to one of our collection points for recycling, between 30th December and 12th January.
