Christmas Tree Recycling
We know that there will be hundreds of real Christmas trees bringing joy to households in Lincoln, but for when the time comes to dispose of your tree, there are three easy options:
1. If you are subscribed to the Garden Waste Service, your tree can be chopped up and placed in your green bin
2. Present your tree with your black bin for collections from 6th to 20th January 2020. Please note, your Christmas tree will not be taken with your black bin as it will be collected by another vehicle on the same day as your black bin collection
3. Dispose of your tree by visiting the Household Waste Recycling Centre, Great Northern Terrace, Lincoln, LN5 8LG, but remember to check the opening times before packing your tree in the car!
