We’re offering a free collection service for real Christmas trees from Monday 7 January.

To have your real Christmas tree collected it must not:

  • be larger than 6ft tall
  • have decorations or container at the bottom included
  • have other items mixed in with the tree

For residents with wheeled bins

Leave your real Christmas tree next to your bins and it will be collected on your next brown bin collection day. Please ensure the tree is visible from the road for the collection crew, especially if you do not have a brown bin.

Find out your Christmas bin collection days.
