If you have a food and garden waste collection, real Christmas trees can be collected as part of your normal household collection service. Simply remove any decorations and its pot or stand and place your tree next to your brown bin ready for collection.
Real trees are recyclable, however artificial ones are not. Real trees are usually shredded into chippings which are then used locally in parks or woodland areas. Due to the combination of materials used to make an artificial tree you are unable to recycle it. However, if in good condition, you could ask friends and family if they want it, advertise it on an exchange website or donate it to charity.
If you don’t have a scheduled food and garden waste collection service you can book an ad-hoc bulk waste collection simply telephone 020 7525 2000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
