Recycle your Christmas Tree in Croydon – 2016 details

Croydon Council is offering the usual arrangements for recycling of Christmas trees again this year.  Christmas trees can be recycled at the council’s Reuse and Recycle Centres or at specific drop off points across the borough.

You have until 9 January 2016 to leave a tree at one of the special drop-off points for collection starting on Sunday January 3.

Croydon Council say, 

“With almost one million Christmas trees thrown away each year in London alone – and fewer than 10% of those being recycled – it is important that we remember to recycle our tree.

If you opt for a real Christmas tree this year, do not forget to take it to one of the council’s designated recycling collection points between Friday 1 and Saturday 9 January.

At other times, Christmas trees can be taken to any of the council’s reuse and recycling centres – but please remember to remove all tinsel and decorations before taking it to be recycled.”

Trees needing to be disposed of after 9 January can be taken to one of the borough’s three reuse and recycling centres.
