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 into compost or wood chippings. You don’t need to book a collection, just place your tree with your recycling containers on your first recycling collection day from Monday 8th January.

Also don’t forget with the Council’s improved recycling service you can now recycle all your waxed tetra-pak cartons, mixed plastics, including yoghurt pots and food trays, batteries and textiles. Christmas cards can also be recycled through the kerbside collection service.

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.
