Christmas tree collection points in the borough

Basingstoke Gazette: Christmas tree collection points in the borough Christmas tree collection points in the borough

THE decorations will be down, or coming down – so now is the time to think about recycling your Christmas tree.

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council has allocated 21 sites across the borough for Christmas trees to be taken from tomorrow until January 26.

Each year eight million real Christmas trees are thrown away in the UK. But if trees are recycled, they can be transformed into ProGrow soil conditioner and wood chippings, which will be used by the borough council on the town’s parks.

Councillor Robert Donnell, cabinet member for environment, said: “After all the festivities are over, it can be a real pain to dispose of the tree. But by taking it to one of the locations across the borough, it can then be turned into soil conditioner which will help our gardens to bloom.”
