When the festive season is over and your real Christmas tree has lost its sparkle, don’t just throw it away – make sure you recycle it.
Eastleigh Borough residents can recycle their Christmas trees from Tuesday 2 January 2018.
Recycling collection points for real Christmas trees have been set up around the borough where they can be dropped off between 2-15 January.
Trees can be dropped off at:
• Brambridge Garden Centre, Brambridge
• Lakeside Country Park, Eastleigh
• Haskins Garden Centre, West End
• Fair Oak Garden Centre, Fair Oak
• Woodhouse Lane Car Park, Hedge End
• Mortimer Road Car Park, Botley
• Hound Parish Hall, Woolston, Road, Netley
…..and recycled at
• Household Waste and Recycling Centre – Shamblehurst Lane, Hedge End
• Household Waste and Recycling Centre – Knowle Lane, Fair Oak
• Household Waste and Recycling Centre – Woodside Avenue, Eastleigh
• Household Waste and Recycling Centre – Grange Road, Netley
Residents who subscribe to Eastleigh Borough Council’s garden waste scheme can have Christmas trees that under four-feet tall picked up from their home address on their scheduled collection day – they just need to place it next to their garden waste bin.
Cabinet Lead for Environment & Sustainability Councillor Rupert Kyrle said,
‘This is a very popular scheme with local residents. Last year many hundreds of trees were recycled in an environmentally friendly way. I encourage everyone to recycle their Christmas trees for free at one of the sites throughout our borough.’
