You can take your tree to any of the following drop-off points from Friday, 6 to Tuesday, 24 January 2023.

  • Webbs Garden Centre, Evesham Road, Bishop’s Cleeve
  • Dundry Nurseries, Bamfurlong Lane, Staverton

Please remove all decorations and any pots or stands before leaving your tree for recycling.

If you are a subscriber to Tewkesbury Borough Council’s garden waste collection service, you can use your brown bin to recycle your tree. Small trees can go in the bin, but trees taller than two metres (six feet) will need to be cut in half and placed next to the bin for collection.

Councillor Jim Mason, lead member for clean and green environment, said: “When the time comes to take down your Christmas decorations, it doesn’t need to be the end of your real Christmas tree.

“Real trees are 100% recyclable, and can be shredded and turned into usable chippings.

“So give your tree a new lease of life – next year it could be part of a beautiful woodland path!”
