Christmas trees

If you have a real Christmas tree please recycle it.


  • If you are subscribed to green bin garden waste collection, cut up the tree and put it in your green bin. Or put the whole tree next to your green bin if it is under 6ft tall.
  • Buy a garden waste sack from your local library or Marshfield Country Stores (£2.10) and attach it to your tree with string (no plastic). If your tree is over 6ft tall, please cut it in half. Book a collection on the website, call us on 01454 868000 or visit a One Stop Shop.

Drop it off:

  • Take your tree to your local Sort It recycling centre (link). Make sure your vehicle is registered and check the opening times before you travel.


Remove all decorations including loose tinsel. We cannot recycle your tree if it has decorations on it.

If your tree is more than 6ft tall, please cut it in half or cut it up. We cannot fit your tree safely on our vehicle if it is over 6ft tall.

 Extra waste and recycling

Many of us have extra visitors over the festive season and this means extra waste. The good news is that most of it can be recycled using the weekly recycling collection. Our tips for managing your waste and recycling this Christmas:

  • Check for collection day changes and what can be recycled from home.
  • Sort your recycling in the containers so our crews can collect it easily.
  • Save space and keep your recycling tidy between collections by flattening and cutting up large pieces of card and squashing plastics and cans
  • Line your food bin with a plastic bag, compostable bag or newspaper to help keep it clean
  • Avoid extra food waste by planning your meals for the festive season and using up leftovers
  • Mix plastics, cans, aerosols and foil together – they will be separated later
  • We can recycle wrapping paper and greetings cards without glitter or plastic embellishments. Put wrapping paper with the rest of your recyclable paper and greetings card with cardboard. Paper or card with glitter or plastic should go into your black bin.
  • Remove all polystyrene packaging and put it in the black bin or take it to the Sort It recycling centre if you have a large quantity
  • Put extra recycling out in bags, just make sure glass bottles and jars are in a green box
  • Put your containers out by 7am on collection day and take them back onto your property at the end of the day
