It’s time to say goodbye to our Christmas trees. Free recycling is offered by Richmond Council, on your usual green waste collection day [you don’t have to be signed up to the regular green recycling scheme]. Make sure you remove all ornaments and pots, and please don’t obstruct the pavement! Trees will then be shredded and turned into compost, which will be used to feed plants in gardens, green spaces and flowerpots across the borough. Check Richmond’s website here to find out the next collection day in your area, or locate your nearest drop-off point.
