How to dispose of your Christmas tree after the festive period


When disposing of a Christmas tree, we’re reminding residents to:

Remove any decorations

  • Cut the tree down to smaller, manageable pieces
  • Place into a brown garden waste bin

For residents not subscribed to AVDC’s garden waste collection service, Christmas trees will need to be taken to a local household recycling centre.

 Christmas recycling reminder – things ‘Yule’ need to know!

We produce 30% more waste at Christmas but many festive items can be recycled:

Christmas cards (but not foil or glitter ones please)

Clean paper plates

Paper hats and paper crackers (but not the snap please)

Cleaned aluminium foil

Wrapping paper and gift tags (remove any ribbons and bows first)

Chocolate tins and plastic tubs


Any extra recycling will be collected by our crews, if presented in a clear bag next to the blue-lidded recycling bin on collection day.
