Looking to recycle your Christmas tree? Our popular Christmas recycling scheme is back, popping up across the whole borough just like a Christmas elf.
The festive period is right around the corner and whilst residents get ready to celebrate, the council has organised a number of ways to dispose of your tree in the most sustainable way.
To recycle you tree you have a number of options:
- Drop your tree off at locations across Brent from Monday, 26 December to Sunday, 8 January. Take a look at the map of all the locations in the borough.
- Take it to the Abbey Road Reuse and Recycling Centre, but keep in mind that this will be closed on Sunday 25 December, Monday 26 December and also on Sunday 1 January.
- Garden waste subscribers: cut your tree into small pieces and place these in your green bin
- Arrange for it to be taken as part of bulky waste service. If you have a few items that you want collected, why not include your Christmas tree as well. The service costs £35 for up to five items to be collected.
Councillor Krupa Sheth, Brent’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Infrastructure and Climate Action said: “I am proud that we continue to make it as easy as possible to sustainably get rid of your Christmas tree – which is then decomposed and used as mulch in our award winning parks.
