Christmas Tree Recycling

Huntingdonshire District Council (HDC) are supporting East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice again this year who will be collecting real Christmas trees for recycling on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th January.

To check availability and book your slot visit just-helping.org.uk/register-tree

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 HDC ask that it is chopped

in half.

The Household Recycling Centres will also take Christmas trees.

 

HDC will be informing residents of these changes via a bin hanger which will be placed on grey bins in December.  There will be a full page of advice in the Hunts Post on Wednesday 9th December and HDC will be posting on their social media sites – links to these are below
