If you are a garden waste subscriber with Cornwall Council, you can put your real Christmas tree out on your normal garden waste collection day for shredding and composting. Trees up to 6ft tall will be collected minus decorations, tinsel and pots. If it is larger than 6ft, please cut it into two parts.
If you do not subscribe to garden waste collections you can take your tree to the nearest Household Waste and Recycling Centre. Please remove it from the pot and take off any decorations.
Alternatively, please put your tree out on your normal rubbish collection day between Monday 10 January and Friday 14 January 2022.
Artificial trees can not be left out for collection, but may be taken to charity shops or recycling centres.
Or help the Widemouth coastline …
After the festivities are over, take your Christmas tree over to Black Rock Beach on Sunday 9th January, 10am-1pm (postponed due to high winds).
It’s brightened up your front room now it can do vital work preserving the sand dunes.
As storms will become a more regular occurrence due to climate change, it’s more important than ever to do what we can to protect our beautiful coastline.
