Real Christmas tree recycling

We will recycle your real Christmas tree for free!

If you have a garden waste bin all you need to do is leave your real Christmas tree (without decorations) beside your brown bin for collection throughout January.

If you don't - not a problem - you can recycle your tree at any of our collection points listed below.

Large trees (more than 7 ft tall, 3 inch trunk) can only be collected via a collection point or at any of Suffolk's household recycling centres - Find your nearest recycling centre
