by awitherick on 5 January, 2012

So we’re already running out of time and the Easter Eggs are out in the shops!

Details of the Christmas card recycling points are on the Council’s website at:

Real Christmas trees can go in your green bin- it’s small enough!  Please ensure that the trunk and branches are no wider than a broom handle and the lid to the green bin can be closed.

Trees can also be taken to your local Household Waste and Recycling Centre (HWRC) for composting. You can find your nearest HWRC at

Some garden centres will chip your tree. Aylett Nurseries, for example, will collect and chip your tree for a small fee. To find out more about their service, call 01727 822255.
