Please remove all decorations and any pots or stands before leaving your tree for recycling.
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 Sarah Hands, Lead Member for Clean and Green Environment, said: "Don't be too disheartened when it's time to take down your Christmas decorations and dismantle your tree.
"Real Christmas trees are completely recyclable – they will be chipped and turned into compost to enrich the soil. So recycle your real tree and give it a new lease of life.”
