Make a recycling resolution for your Christmas tree

Between Wednesday 2 January and Friday 25 January 2019, 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 refuse collection (black bin) each alternate week, by the garden waste collection teams.

Tree trunks must not exceed 20cm in diameter, or be more than six feet tall (taller trees can be cut in two). Please ensure all decorations are removed. The service is in place for real trees only, not synthetic ones.

If you live in a purpose built flat, please leave your tree outside your building near the bin area, taking care not to block either footpaths or access to the bins. 

Alternatively, until 31 January 2019 you can also take your trees to the following locations to be recycled:

Reuse and recycling centres: 

Acton Reuse and Recycling Centre, Stirling Road, W3 8DJ
Greenford Reuse and Recycling Centre, Greenford Road, UB6 9AP

Councillor Mik Sabiers, cabinet member for environment and highways, said: “We remain committed to making it as easy as possible for residents to recycle and ultimately ensure that Ealing continues to be a cleaner and greener place to live.

“All of the Christmas trees that we collect get turned into nutrient-rich compost so it’s a great way to get your new year off to a green start.”
