Christmas trees (real)

Options for reuse, repair, recycling and disposal

Put out your real, naked Christmas trees on your green/brown bin day in January. Alternatively, take them to collection points around the city or to Redbridge Household Waste Recycling Centre.

Where does it end up?

Christmas trees are composted at a site in Oxfordshire. The compost is used to fertilise local fields.
