Keep it green - recycle your real Christmas tree

Aylesbury Vale District Council is calling on all householders with a real Christmas tree to use its tree recycling service on 9 January 2010.

A tree shredding machine will be available at the Wyevale Garden Centre at Worlds End, Wendover, from 9am until 2.30pm. The wood chippings collected will be recycled and made into compost.

Anyone taking in their tree to the garden centre can, if they provide their own bag, take some of the chippings to use as mulch.

Real Christmas trees can also be taken to the household waste recycling centres at Rabans Lane in Aylesbury, Yonder Slade in Buckingham and College Road North in Aston Clinton (see for details). They are open every day except 25 and 26 December and 1 January.
