Christmas trees can be recycled at either of the county’s Civic Amenity sites (Cottesmore and North Luffenham). You can also put real Christmas trees into your green bin provided they are cut into small pieces that fit inside the bin.
Please remember that winter opening hours for both sites are 10.00am until 4.00pm. Sites close at 3pm on Christmas Eve and will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
If the weather is very bad, such as heavy snow, we may not be able to collect your bin safely. When this happens we need bins to be left out until we can return to empty them.
If your bin hasn’t been emptied within 24 hours of the normal collection day, we will collect a reasonable amount of extra waste or recycling when we can to empty it.
