Free Christmas tree recycling available next week

3 January 2019

Twelfth night is approaching this weekend and many people have already taken down their Christmas tree and decorations.

If you have had a ‘real’ Christmas tree this year, Cheshire West and Chester Council has organised a free recycling service. The chipped trees will then be re-used as mulch by the Council’s StreetCare teams.

All you have to do is take your tree along to one of six locations across the borough between Monday 7 and Friday 11 January 2019.
The chipping service will be available at the following locations next week:
  • Knights Grange, Winsford
  • Hooton Golf Club
  • Westminster Park, Chester
  • Whitby Park, Ellesmere Port
  • Stanney Fields, Neston​​​​​​​
  • Castle Park, Frodsham​​​​​​​
The Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Councillor Karen Shore said: “We’re pleased to be offering this service for free next week to encourage residents to recycle their trees after they have enjoyed them over Christmas.

“Please make sure there is no string or metal attached to your tree. Trained staff from the Council’s StreetCare Services teams will then shred the trees into bark chippings which will be used on the authority’s parks and gardens.”
