Just prior to Christmas Surrey Heath Borough Council announced a Christmas tree recycling scheme,
Between 3-15 January 2017, Surrey Heath Borough Council are running 15 drop off sites across the borough where residents can drive in and leave their Christmas tree in a designated area.
At the end of this period, the trees will be chipped and the resulting wood chippings will be used to replenish paths in Surrey Heath’s parks.
This event is being sponsored by an experienced local family-run company, Branch Management (http://www.branchmanagement.co.uk/). Based in Bagshot, they cater for all aspects of tree care for customers across Surrey Heath.
Surrey Heath Business Portfolio Holder Cllr Craig Fennell said: “This great scheme has a double benefit – helping the local community to recycle their Christmas trees, and also improving the local environment by using the wood chippings to restock paths in our lovely parks and green spaces.”
The sites where Christmas trees can be dropped off are:
