Surrey Heath Borough Council’s Christmas tree recycling scheme is back this festive season.
A record number of more than 3,400 Christmas trees were collected for recycling in Surrey Heath in January 2023 via the scheme.
In the new year, residents can bring their real Christmas trees to one of our 15 recycling points from 3-21 January, and do their bit for the local environment – and the planet!
Once collected, the trees will be chipped, with the woodchips used to top up paths in our beautiful parks and green spaces.
Surrey Heath Portfolio Holder for Leisure & Culture Cllr John Skipper said: “We're pleased to be able to offer our free Christmas tree recycling scheme for residents again this year.
“Its environmental focus supports our Net Zero priorities, and with the resulting woodchips being used in our fantastic parks and greenspaces, we all benefit.”
The sites where Christmas trees can be dropped off are:
|Heatherside Park (near the recreation ground)
|Watchetts Recreation Ground
|Old Dean Recreation Ground
|Prior Heath Car Park, Camberley
|Frimley Green Recreation Ground
