Christmas tree recycling options

Garden waste collections

If you pay for a garden waste collection service you can put your tree in your garden waste bin for recycling.

Council Christmas tree collections

We can save your car (needle mayhem) by collecting your Christmas tree for recycling. It costs £5 and you can book a collection date by calling customer services on 01636 650000. Old trees will need to be accessible near to the edge of the property (but not on the highway).

Local recycling centres 

All real trees can be taken to the county’s Recycling Centres. Trees taken for recycling are either chipped to make paths in parks and gardens, or shredded for composting, turning waste into a resource.

As a thank you, for every 50 tonnes of real Christmas trees and garden waste taken to the Recycling Centres in January, £100 will be donated to Portland College, the Chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council’s chosen charity.

Opening times 8am to 4pm
