Recycling your real Christmas tree

Once you have packed the decorations away for another year, make sure to recycle your real Christmas tree. Recycled trees can be turned into good quality compost or soil conditioner, or into chippings.

Uttlesford District Council is providing skips and refuse vehicles at a number of locations around the district in the New Year - simply take along your Christmas tree and other green waste.
