How to dispose of your old Christmas tree

Do you have a traditional Christmas tree that will need to be thrown out in January?

Reading Borough Council is providing drop-off points in car parks around the town for disposal of Christmas trees, starting on Monday 2 January.  Old trees will be recycled into wood chips for projects around Reading.

The nearest drop-off point to our area will be at the Rivermead car park – look for the drop-off point near the recycling bins. Trees can also be taken to the main recycling centre at Smallmead – don’t forget to take your orange permit.
