Households receiving individual dustbin/sack based waste collection services will have their Christmas trees collected on the same day as their rubbish and clear recycling sacks. However, the collection will not occur at the same time as a different collection vehicle is used for the trees to ensure that they are kept separate for composting.
Where to leave your Christmas tree
If you have a front garden - Place your tree alongside your dustbins and recycling sacks inside your garden.
If you do not have a front garden - Place your tree on the pavement directly in front of your home if your front door opens directly onto it. However, do not do this before 6.30pm on the day before the collection is due. Place your tree near your rubbish bin, making sure you do not obstruct access to it if your rubbish goes in large, communal wheeled bins.
Christmas tree dumping
Leaving Christmas trees on the pavement in contravention of the above advice is fly-tipping. This is a criminal offence which may result in a fine or prosecution.
