CHRISTMAS TREE RECYCLING AND BIN COLLECTION DETAILS
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 Babergh and Mid Suffolk 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 Babergh and Mid Suffolk where residents can leave their Christmas tree – 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 scheme six years ago, the collection sites have become well established and to date over 6,200 trees have been recycled.
Trees can be left at the collection sites from 7 am on Saturday 4th January. To find out where your local collection site will be, please click on this link for details in Mid Suffolk
Real Christmas trees can also be left next to brown bins for collection during the month of January 2014.
