Nearly time to say goodbye to your Christmas tree

Release Date: 03/01/2017

Residents are reminded that the free Christmas tree recycling service will commence from 9 January 2017.

From 9 to 20 January, Richmond Council will begin collecting the trees for free on residents’ scheduled collection days. Trees will then be shredded and turned into compost, which will be used to feed plants in gardens, green spaces and flowerpots across the borough.

  • Residents should leave their trees outside their property in a place that does not block the pavement, ideally next to recycling containers, on collection day. Please remove all ornaments and stands or pots from your tree.

Alternatively you can take your Christmas tree to:

  • Re-use and Recycling Centre, Townmead Road (Pedestrian access is restricted)
  • Wickes Car Park, 50 South Road
  • Squires Garden Centre Car Park, Sixth Cross Road
  • Old Deer Car Park
  • Ham Street Car Park
