With the Christmas decorations coming down for another year you may be wondering what to do with your real Christmas tree.

The Council will recycle your real Christmas tree for you, turning it into compost or wood chippings. You don’t need to book a collection, just place your tree with your recycling bin on your first recycling collection day from Monday 7th January.

Also don’t forget with our improved recycling service you can now recycle all your glass bottles and jars in your blue bin along with your mixed plastics. Wrapping paper and Christmas cards can be recycled in your brown bin, also cardboard and waxed cartons.

Don’t forget if you’re having a New Year clear out you can also book a free Bulky Collection via your my.hyndburn app.
