There are several things to remember when you take your tree down.
If you have an artificial tree, undress it carefully and store it so it can be used next year and for several years to come.
If you had a living tree, once again remove all the decorations then take it to one of the many collection points. We have one by the entrance near Fourth Avenue, in Ilbert Street. There is also an area at St Luke’s Church on Fernhead Road. Don’t just put it out with your general waste. Those trucks are not designed to take trees. More information and other locations here. You have until 12th January to use these collection points so please be kind to your neighbourhood. Carelessly discarded trees are a menace to disabled path users and mothers with buggies..
When it’s time to take down your Christmas decorations, keep them to use again next year. If they’ve come to the end of their life, remember #fairylights shouldn’t be sent to landfill, but taken to household waste #recycling centre.
