Real Christmas tree recycling

Garden Waste Service members

If you are a garden waste member, we will collect your real Christmas trees so they can be composted.

  • please put these out in or next to your brown wheeled garden bin for collection, on your usual garden waste collection day (we will collect Christmas trees placed next to your brown garden waste bin during January only).
  • remove all decorations please.

Garden waste collections are suspended for two weeks over the festive period, from Saturday 23 December 2017 to Saturday 6 January 2018. Collections will resume the week starting Monday 8 January 2018.

Non-Garden Waste Service members

If you have not joined our Garden Waste Service, you can take your old Christmas trees to your local Community Recycling Centres. A link to the Earlswood and Epsom centres can be found at:

If you do not have access to a vehicle, you may want to speak to a neighbour, friend or member of your family to ask if they can help.
