Recycle your real Christmas tree

Real Christmas trees can be recycled into good quality compost or soil conditioner, or into chippings. You can take them to your local household waste recovery centre during normal site opening times- 8am to 6pm – where they are collected and recycled along with other items of garden waste. Northumberland County Council have also arranged additional collection points across the county. Please ensure that you have deposited your tree there by the end date.

You can take your Christmas tree to one of the sites below from 1 January until the chipping day. Please make sure that there is no string or metal attached to it. If you would like a bag of chippings please call at a site during the chipping time.
