Christmas Tree Recycling

We are supporting East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice again this year who will be collecting real Christmas trees for recycling on Saturday 15 January 2022.

Collections are available to residents who live in the following postcode areas only:

  • PE19
  • PE27
  • PE28
  • PE29

Check availability and book your slot.

Donations received from the Christmas tree collection provide vital funds for your hospice and other local charities.

Real trees can be placed by the side of the garden bin on collection day. If the tree is bigger than the bin we ask that it is chopped in half.

The Household Recycling Centres will also take Christmas trees.

Finally, don't forget to follow HuntingdonshireRecycles socials to keep up to date with tips on reducing your waste over the festive period.
