From Monday 9 January – Monday 20 January 2017, Hounslow Council is again offering residents the opportunity to get your real Christmas trees collected and recycled free of charge.

Please leave your tree out next to your waste and recycling on the above collection day and it will be collected by the garden waste crews.

Alternatively, you can take your tree to the Council’s Civic Amenity site at Space Waye or a civic amenity site in a neighbouring borough.

Bin hangers were distributed to all wheelie bin households before Christmas showing these days and the collection arrangements over Christmas and New Year.

You need to remove all decorations, pots and stands before the tree is put out for collection, otherwise the tree will not be collected.

Residents living in flats are also included in this arrangement and you should leave your tree adjacent to your usual bin area and it will be picked up on the day scheduled for the surrounding area. Trees should be left out for collection by 7am on the collection day.

Alternatively, you can take your tree to the Council’s Civic Amenity site at Space Waye or a civic amenity site in a neighbouring borough.

Councillor Amrit Mann, Deputy Leader of Hounslow Council said: “We want to make it as easy as possible for residents to do the right thing and recycle their Christmas trees. We’re offering this free service to collect and recycle Christmas trees, while also protecting our environment. “

“Why not make recycling one of your top new year’s resolutions ? We have lots of videos and information on our website to help the whole household get a grip on their rubbish.”
