Christmas tree shredding

Please also note that your real Christmas tree can be shredded and composted provided it is taken to Batsford Garden Centre in Moreton-in-Marsh (GL56 9QB), Dobbies Garden Centre near Cirencester (GL7 6EU) or Wyevale Garden Centre in Lechlade (GL7 3DP).  All three will accept trees for recycling from Tuesday 2 January until Sunday 14 January. 

Residents who subscribe to our green waste recycling service will be able to recycle their used Christmas trees by placing them in the relevant bin. Please ensure that the tree is broken into manageable lengths so that it will fit comfortably in the bin.
