West Oxfordshire District Council is encouraging residents to recycle their real Christmas trees.

Householders already signed up for garden waste collections can simply put them out on their next scheduled garden collection when the service re-starts from Wednesday 9 January. Trees should be cut up and placed inside their licensed garden bin.

If your garden waste bin is full, please leave your cut up tree next to your full bin for collection. Trees larger than 90cm / 3ft should be cut up into manageable pieces before putting out.

Anyone that is not a garden waste customer can take their tree along to the nearest waste and recycling centre (council tip).
