Cotswold District Council - Tree Recycling

Keen recyclers made a tree-mendous effort over Christmas.

Real Christmas trees from the Cotswold District are being transformed into compost thanks to the efforts of residents and the District Council.

Many people took their trees to Dobbies Garden Centre at Siddington thanks to a joint initiative with the Council.

The final trees deposited at Dobbies were shredded on Monday before joining the rest of the district's green waste in being recycled into a soil conditioner for farmers.

Any remaining trees can still be chopped up and put in residentsí garden waste wheelie bins or recycled at the Household Recycling Centres at Fosse Cross, six miles north of Cirencester off the A429, or Pyke Quarry, two miles west of Horsley on the B4058 Wotton-under-Edge road.
