Recycle your real trees for a greener Christmas

Forest of Dean residents wanting to recycle their real Christmas trees will be able to leave them out for collection between Monday 6 and Friday 17 January 2020 on their normal garden waste collection day.

The Christmas tree collection service – operated by the Forest of Dean District Council and waste contractor Biffa – is available to all households, including those without a current garden waste licence. 

To use the service, residents need to put their tree out at the kerbside by 7.30am on their scheduled garden waste collection day between the two dates.  Garden waste collections take place on the alternate week to the refuse collection for most properties.
