'Treecycle' in Oxfordshire
A free chipping service is being organised by West Oxfordshire District Council to encourage residents to recycle their Christmas trees.
Chippings will be used locally to create environmentally-friendly biomass energy. All people need to do is take their real Christmas trees along and the rest will be done by professionals, for free. Last Christmas, the chipping service led to 10.5 tonnes of trees being recycled.
Chippers will be at the following locations between 10am and 3pm on:
Saturday, January 6th
* Charlbury - Spendlove Centre
* Eynsham - Back Lane car park
* Woodstock - Hensington Road car park
Sunday, January 7th
* Carterton - Black Bourton Road car park
* Chipping Norton - New Street car park
* Witney - Welch Way car park
