Thinking about how you can be greener in 2022? Start by recycling your real Christmas tree!

You can take your tree to your nearest Household Waste and Recycling Centre for composting.

If you subscribe to Cornwall Council’s garden waste service and would like your real Christmas tree collected, please put it out on your normal garden waste collection day.

If you don’t have a garden waste subscription, you can put it out on your normal rubbish collection day between Monday 10 January and Friday 14 January and they will collect it for composting.

Real Christmas trees up to six feet tall can be collected. Please cut your tree in two if it’s larger than six feet. Trees will be shredded and composted, so make sure you remove the pot and any decorations.
