Real Christmas tree recycling

If you have a brown bin

During January, you can leave your real Christmas tree, with all decorations removed, beside your brown bin on collection day.

Please note: Large trees (trees that are over 7ft tall, or have a trunk thicker than 7cm), can only be collected via a collection point. They can also be taken to a Suffolk Recycling Centre.

Don't have a brown bin?

You can recycle your real Christmas tree, with all decorations removed, at one of our collection points.

You can also take the tree to a Suffolk Recycling Centre.
