Christmas Tree Recycling in Lewisham

Courtesy of Lewisham Council, who are careful to reassure us that Christmas is great...

Residents in Lewisham can once again recycle their Christmas trees once the 12th Night arrives.

Last year over 7,000 Christmas trees were collected, mulched and used for compost in Lewisham’s parks.Councillor Susan Wise, Cabinet Member for Customer Services, said:

“Christmas is great, but many people may not be sure what to do with their old Christmas trees when they take them down.

"Last year Lewisham recycled over seven thousand Christmas trees – that’s amazing! We would love people to think ‘green’ again this year by taking their trees to any of the collection points around the borough and have their tree recycled.”
