How do I dispose of my Christmas tree?

If its a real tree it can be composted. Rother garden waste customers can place trees into their brown bin for collection.

Please remember to cut it up first, it must be contained within your brown bin so it will need chopping up. Don’t leave trees whole next to your brown bin, they wont be collected

Health and safety does not allow operatives to pick up and throw trees directly into the back of the vehicle, they could get stuck in the lifting equipment or bounce out and land on an unfortunate operative.

If you are not a Rother garden waste customer you can compost your own tree if you have a compost heap or alternatively take it to your local tip.

If it is an artificial tree and in a suitable condition you can give it away or sell second hand otherwise its got to go to the tip for disposal.
