Recycling real Christmas trees

Before you recycle your tree remove all decorations, pots and stands.

Using the garden waste service

Green bin collection (subscription only): If you have subscribed to the garden waste service you can put your tree into or next to your green bin

Garden waste sack: You can buy a single use garden waste sack for £2.10 from your nearest library or Country Stores at 48 High Street Marshfield SN14 8LP. Just attach the sack to the tree for a special one off collection after Christmas.

If your tree is over 6ft, it must be cut up into smaller sections for collection or taken to the Sort It recycling centre

Taking it to a recycling centre

You can recycle your tree at one of our four Sort It recycling centresReal Christmas trees need to go into the skip for garden (green) waste, not the wood waste skip. Don’t forget to remove all decorations, pots and stands before recycling.

Recycle responsibly…..abandoning any waste including unwanted Christmas trees on public or private land is flytipping, an illegal activity which can result in prosecution.
