Councillor John Tanner, Board Member for a Cleaner, Greener Oxford, says: "Thank you to everyone who brought a tree to one of our recycling points.
"By recycling our Christmas trees, we are reducing waste and helping to make Oxford’s parks and open spaces even more beautiful.
"If anyone still has a Christmas tree left to recycle, please take it to Redbridge Recycling Centre."
Seventeen Christmas tree collection points were located in Oxford’s parks and open spaces from Wednesday 2 to Sunday 20 January 2013.
