Christmas tree recycling across the borough

Having bought the worst Christmas tree ever this year, BC is just waiting for the earliest opportunity to ditch it without losing too much face. A few needles should still be clinging to the branches by the time Christmas Day rolls around but December 28th can't come quickly enough. Here are the recycling details from Lewisham Council:

Christmas trees can be deposited between 28 December 2013 and 27 January 2014, at the following places. Trees that are recycled at these points are collected, chipped and used as mulch in various parks around the borough:

·         Hilly Fields - entrance in Hilly Fields Crescent, SE4
·         Deptford Park - entrance in Scawen Road, SE8
·         Telegraph Hill - Pepys Road/Kitto Road entrance, SE14
·         Talbot Place - Blackheath, SE3
·         Mountsfield Park - entrance top of George Lane, SE13
·         Sydenham Wells Park - entrance Wells Park Road, SE26
·         Forster Memorial Park - entrance top of Whitefoot Lane, SE6
·         Northbrook Park - Baring Road entrance, SE12
·         Mayow Park - entrance in Mayow Road, SE23
·         Chinbrook Meadows, Amblecote Road, SE12

The Council is also keen to remind residents that Christmas wrapping paper and cards can be recycled using the green bins.
