Re­cy­cled Christ­mas yet? Here is where to take the left­overs

Southport Visiter - - Visiter Active -

NOW it is the New Year it’s time to start think­ing about where your tree will go once you’ve taken all the dec­o­ra­tions down.

Luck­ily, there are a num­ber of lo­ca­tions across Sefton that will re­cy­cle your tree – how­ever some places that re­cy­cled trees last year may not be pro­vid­ing the ser­vice again this year.

The good news is that the House­hold Waste Re­cy­cling Cen­tres are now back to nor­mal open­ing hours, so if you’re in a hurry to get rid of the smell of pine nee­dles the wait­ing is over.

Peo­ple can take their Christ­mas tree to the fol­low­ing places: South­port House­hold Waste Re­cy­cling Cen­tre on Foul Lane, South­port PR9 7RG; Formby House­hold Waste Re­cy­cling Cen­tre, on Alt­car Road, Formby, L37 8DL; Sefton Mead­ows on Sefton Lane in Maghull L31 8BX.

Vic­to­ria Road in Formby will be open from January 4 to January 22 for a drop-off ser­vice on be­half of The Na­tional Trust.

St Joseph’s Hos­pice ( Jospice) in Thorn­ton can be con­tacted for a drop- off or col­lec­tion ser­vice on 0151 932 6044, for a small do­na­tion.

View more de­tails of the Christ­mas tree col­lec­tion ser­vice on the St Joseph’s Hos­pice web­site.

Queen­scourt Hos­pice in South­port is also of­fer­ing a tree col­lec­tion ser­vice again this year for a small do­na­tion on January 14 and January 15.

And for those who last year took their tree to Lifeboat Road in Formby – un­for­tu­nately they will not be ac­cept­ing any Christ­mas trees this year.

Get rid of Christ­mas!
