|Time to Recycle Your Tree for Free|
The green way to clear up the festive clutter
Hammersmith and Fulham Council is once again offering a free service collecting and recycling Christmas trees.
The council says that last Christmas local people helped recycle 50 tonnes of Christmas trees that would have been expensively disposed of if they had been left out with the ordinary rubbish. Christmas trees will be composted and put to good use rather than going to waste.
If you have your recycling and rubbish collected in sacks from outside your home, leave your tree in your front garden or outside your property where it is clearly visible from the street and does not cause an obstruction on the pavement, by midday on one of your normal weekday rubbish and recycling collection days from Wednesday 2 January to Tuesday 15 January. Trees will be collected in the afternoon, not at the same time as your bags. Please remember to remove decorations.
There are also designated collection points where you can take your trees between the dates above. These include:
