Be­gin the year with a green ges­ture

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

GET 2015 off to a green start and re­cy­cle your real Christ­mas tree and pre­vent it go­ing to land­fill.

If your tree has roots it can be re-planted in a pot or in the gar­den to be re-used next year. Al­ter­na­tively, you can re­cy­cle your Christ­mas tree at a num­ber of sites across the dis­trict again this year.

If you have a green gar­den waste col­lec­tion bin you can put your real tree di­rectly into it – you may need to cut it down into smaller pieces to en­sure that the lid can still close firmly. Do not for­get that there will not be any gar­den waste col­lec­tions un­til Jan­uary 5, 2015.

Al­ter­na­tively, take your tree along to one of the house­hold waste re­cy­cling sites which can be found in Lan­g­ley, Burn­ham and Bea­cons­field. To find your near­est cen­tre, visit

Used Christ­mas trees can also be taken to the Stoke Po­ges Memo­rial Gar­dens, Church Lane, Stoke Po­ges, be­tween Jan­uary 2 and 16 from 9.30am to 4.30pm. Ev­ery tree col­lected will be turned into com­post and pre­vents more waste go­ing to land­fill.

If you have any ques­tions email The Waste Team re­cy­cling@ south­ or call 01895 837 333.
