Free Christmas tree collections
From 9 to 31 January 2018 we will collect your real Christmas tree for composting, as part of our garden waste collection service. Please:
- Cut up your tree if it is more than 1.2 meters tall so it will fit in our vehicles
- Remove the pot and any decorations first
- Put it at the edge of your property on your garden waste collection day so that our crews can easily see it. To check which week we collect your garden waste enter your address Services in Your Area
