Advice on how to dispose of your Christmas tree

Now the festivities are over and the baubles and tinsel are put back into their box, do you know how to properly dispose of your tree?

Denbighshire County Council are asking people to properly dispose of their tree this year, be it real or fake.

If you opt for a real tree, you can recycle it in your green wheelie bin or green sacks. It is advised that it is cut up first to ensure it fits properly in your bin. 

If you cannot fit it into your bin, real trees can be taken to your local Recycling and Waste Park for proper disposal.

If you choose an artificial tree, it is recommended that this is reused year after year to help reduce waste. When you do decide to dispose of your artificial tree, it is advised that it is also taken to your local Recycling and Waste Park.

Councillor Barry Mellor, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “Christmas trees are the centrepiece of the home during the festive period. It is wonderful to see how creative people can get when decorating them.

"That being said, it is important that when we want to get rid of them, they are disposed of properly. It is essential that you dispose of your tree through your home recycling in green bins or sacks, or in a local Recycling and Waste Park."
