Residents Urged To Tree-Cycle This Christmas
Cotswold District Council is dreaming of a cleaner, greener Christmas.
Householders are being urged to recycle as much of their waste as possible over the festive period – including their real Christmas trees.
The Council has joined forces with Dobbies Garden Centre at Siddington, near Cirencester, and Batsford Arboretum and Garden Centre, near Moreton-in-Marsh, to set up collection points for trees which will then be shredded and turned into compost.
Householders can also take their trees to the Household Recycling Centres at Fosse Cross and Horsley or chop them into sections and put them in their green garden waste wheeled bins.
“We all love Christmas but it’s traditionally a time of year when we all produce much more waste than usual,” said Portfolio Holder for the Environment Cllr Mark Tufnell.
“Hopefully, the residents of the Cotswolds will make a resolution to recycle more than ever this Christmas – including their trees.”
Real Christmas trees can be recycled at Dobbies and Batsford Garden Centres until Sunday, 18th January, 2009. After that date they can still be put in green garden waste wheeled bins or taken to Household Recycling Centres.
