There is now really no excuse to not dispose of your real Christmas tree responsibly.
Croydon Council is offering a new Christmas tree collection service as well as the drop off points for recycling of Christmas trees this year.
The service will run from Monday 8 January to Friday 19 January 2018.
All you need to do is put your real Christmas tree next to your landfill bin on your collection day.
Before you put your tree out for collection, please make sure you have removed all decorations, stands and pots. If these have not been removed, your tree may not be collected.
Christmas tree collection points:
Christmas trees can be recycled at the council’s Refuse and Recycling Centres or at specific drop off points across the borough.
Take your real Christmas tree to any collection point between Sunday 7 January to Sunday 14 January 2018.
Please do not leave your real Christmas tree at a collection point after 14 January as it will be considered to be fly-tipping, for which you can face a penalty. You’ll need to take it to one of the refuse and recycling centres if you miss the deadline.
