Christmas Tree recycling

Lewisham Council is once again arranging free Christmas Tree recycling at drop-off points in local parks.

The service is available until the last week in January. According to Councillor Susan Wise, Cabinet Member for Customer Services, last year over 10,000 Christmas trees were collected, mulched and used for compost in Lewisham’s parks.

The drop off points are:

- Hilly Fields - entrance in Hilly Fields Crescent, SE4
- Deptford Park - entrance in Scawen Road, SE8
- Telegraph Hill - Pepys Road/Kitto Road entrance, SE14

There seem to be 11 drop off points across the whole of Lewisham - they're on the council's website.

It's great that they can be recycled, but it's not that easy if you haven't got a car.

We will be dragging ours over to Hilly Fields but I think they'll be a massive trail of pine needles for the half a mile walk there....in fact, probably won't be much tree left by the time we drop it off at all...

Use the same method you used to get the tree to your house.

Yep, that would be dragging it through the street and loosing half the pines :o)

But if you have got a car it is pine needles all over the car for the next 18 months! You could use a wheelie bin (and leave the pine needles in the bottom to soak up the urine...).

Who doesn't have a car these days?

"Who doesn't have a car these days?"

People who don't need one.
People who don't want one.
People who can't drive.

It's obvious if you think about it.

Me. I gave up my car when I moved to London 10 years ago and have never regretted it. On the odd occasion a car is needed, taxis and Streetcar do nicely.

@HH - to hastily clarify matters - it was a reference to what was briefly discussed on another thread.

Tamsin said...

It's a matter of what you are used to. Those who have a car cannot imagine how they would get by without one, but I have a neighbour with a job that takes her all over the borough and she does just fine with a weekly travel card.

Headhunter said...

Thanks for the welcome back anon. Nice to see someone noticed I've been gone for a while!

Tamsin - thanks for the clarity, I've been away so not up to date on recent discussions!

"Those who have a car cannot imagine how they would get by without one"

And equally, those of us without one can't imagine how people get by with one. The thought of having to lug a huge hulk of metal around with me everywhere, find somewhere to leave it, worrying about people stealing it, paying £££ every week to fill it up, paying £££££ every year to insure it plus not be able to use it for my main journey (getting to work)...

As for my Christmas tree, it's going out into the back garden in the hope that it'll survive in its pot to do service again in December 2010!
