If you are a subscriber to Tewkesbury Borough Council’s garden waste collection service, you can use your brown bin to recycle your tree. Small trees can go in the bin, but trees taller than two metres (six feet) will need to be cut in half and placed next to the bin for collection.

You can also recycle your Christmas tree at any of the Household Recycling Centres in Gloucestershire – please remember to book your visit in advance.

Councillor Jim Mason, lead member for clean and green environment, said: “Real Christmas trees are 100% recyclable – they can be shredded and used as chippings for natural paths in parks and woodland.

“It’s very easy for people to recycle their trees, so I would urge everyone to do so once the festive season is over and give them a new lease of life.”
