Easily recycle your Christmas tree for free in Surrey Heath

Just prior to Christmas Surrey Heath Borough Council announced a Christmas tree recycling scheme,

christmas-treeSurrey Heath residents can recycle their real Christmas tree for free in the new year as part of a Council-run scheme – and help maintain the borough’s parks at the same time.

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:

Drop-off Location Postcode
Heatherside Park (near the recreation ground) GU15 1AY
Watchetts Recreation Ground GU15 2SR
Old Dean Recreation Ground GU15 4AF
Southcote Park GU15 1JP
Frimley Green Recreation Ground GU16 6JZ
Mytchett Recreation Ground GU16 6JD
School Lane, Bagshot GU19 5BP

Yorktown Car Park, Camberley GU15 3AU
Clarence Drive, Camberley GU15 1JT
Woodend Road Car Park, Deepcut GU16 6SD

Christmas trees can also be dropped off at local refuse centres, or left out with your brown garden waste bin if you are subscribed to the scheme.

Restrictions apply: only real Christmas trees can be accepted for this event, and all decorations must be removed from the trees before they are left at the drop-off points.
