Christmas Tree Shredding

Please note that real Christmas trees can be taken to the following Garden Centres after Christmas Day for recycling up until 12 January 2019. (Once collected they are turned into peat-free compost):

  • Dobbies Garden Centre, Cirencester, GL7 6EU
  • Batsford Garden Centre, Batsford, GL56 9QB (will be taking trees from 6th January)
  • Hillier Garden Centre, Lechlade, GL7 3DP

Residents who subscribe to garden waste recycling collection service will be able to recycle their used real Christmas trees by placing them in their green coloured bin. The next green bin collection is on Thursday 9th January. Please ensure that the tree is broken into manageable lengths so that it will fit comfortably in the bin, with the lid completely closed – plastic to plastic.
