Residents in Ealing are being given a helping hand to recycle their Christmas trees after the festive season draws to a close.
Until 29th January 2023, Ealing Council are providing a tree collection service* to everyone across the borough to help you cut down on waste.
There are a few ways you can recycle your Christmas tree:
1. Leave it out to be collected
You can leave your tree on the front edge of your property to have it taken away for recycling. Trees will be collected on the same day as your black bin rubbish, each alternate week.
Please ensure they do not block access, pathways or the public highway.
2. Take it to your nearest tip or recycling centre
- Greenford Reuse and recycling centre, Greenford Road, UB6 9AP.
Please be aware that you need to pre-book an appointment online via the council’s website before attending Greenford Reuse and recycling centre
3. Parks and open spaces
