Christmas Tree Recycling

HDC are supporting East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice again this year who will be collecting real Christmas trees for recycling on Saturday 15th January 2022.

To check availability and book your slot visit

Donations received from the Christmas tree collection provide vital funds for your hospice and other local charities.


Real trees can be placed by the side of the garden bin on collection day.  If the tree is bigger than the bin they ask that it is chopped

in half.

The Household Recycling Centres will also take Christmas trees.
