Christmas trees (real)
Depending on where you live, you might be able to recycle your real tree at home. Everyone living in Greater Manchester can take their Christmas trees to any of the Recycling Centres for free.
Before you recycle your Chrismas tree:
- remove all decorations and fairy lights
- take off the base or wooden block if your tree has one
- make sure the trunk is not thicker than your wrist. Wood thicker than your wrist is too big and can’t be put in the garden and food bin. You can take large trunks and wooden bases to a Recycling Centre.
- check your local council’s advice or take the tree to your local Recycling Centre
