Free collections for real Christmas trees
Royal Greenwich will recycle your real Christmas tree as part of your weekly collection. If you would like us to collect your tree:
- remove all decorations and the pot
- place the tree at the front of your property - not in your green bin
- make sure it is put out before 6am.
If you don't have a green-top bin you can still leave your tree at the front of your property.
If you live in a flat you should leave your real tree by the bin store.
You don't need to phone for a special collection.
