Following the introduction of the 'garden tax' payment for green waste collections there was a substantial problem of dumped Christmas trees last year on the pavement and in flower beds and shrubberies around Brent. Some hung around through the summer into autumn.
Brent Council has warned that trees dumped in this way count as fly-tipping. This is their guidance:
How to recycle your treeThere are three ways you can recycle your Christmas tree this winter.
Option 1You can take it down to the Reuse and Recycling Centre in Abbey Road. Please note this will be closed on 1 January 2017.
Option 2If you're signed up to the garden waste service you can cut your tree into pieces and place these in your green bin and we'll take it in the January collection of the garden waste service.
You can also take your Christmas tree to a drop off point in a local park or green space in January. Look out for this poster to direct you to the drop off point.
