Christmas Tree Recycling
Residents of Mid Suffolk and Babergh will again be able to make sure their real Christmas trees stay ‘green’ long after the holiday period is over, by using the Councils convenient Christmas tree recycling scheme.
The tree collections are part of a package of recycling initiatives which Mid Suffolk and Babergh District Council are urging people to take part in to make this Christmas as green as possible.
As in previous years, there will be numerous collection points in both Mid Suffolk and Babergh where residents can leave their Christmas trees (without decorations) to be gathered up and taken to a local composting facility where they are chipped and composted, before being used as soil improver so that other plants and trees can thrive.
Since both councils started this highly successful schemes seven years ago, the collection sites have become well established and to date over 6,500 trees have been recycled.
Trees can be left at the designated collection sites. To find out where your local collection site will be, please see: Christmas Tree Recycling Sites
Real Christmas trees can also be left next to brown bins for collection during the month of January 2016.
