Christmas trees


'Real' trees are recyclable and can be shredded into chippings which are then used locally in parks or woodland areas.

Nightingale House Hospice offer a free collection service for real Christmas trees in return for a donation towards patient care at the hospice. To book a collection, please visit or call 01978 314292.

Remember to remove all tinsel and decorations and any pots or stands.

Artificial trees are made from a combination of materials and therefore cannot be recycled. Unwanted trees in good condition may be accepted by some charity shops for re-sale and re-use.

Waste and recycling collections during the holidays

There will be no collections on Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Year’s Day.

However, all household recycling centres will be open throughout the festive period except for Christmas Day.  Check out opening times below:
