Recycling Christmas trees
Anyone with a real Christmas tree can recycle it in the following ways once the festive season is over:

· Take it to the Community Recycling Centres in Bond Road, Warlingham, or Chaldon Road, Caterham and put it in the garden waste container.

· Cut it up and compost it in your home compost bin.

· If you are a member of the Biffa Green Waste Club, cut up your tree (maximum tree trunk 4" diameter) and put it in your bin for collection. Make sure you can still close the lid.
