Council opens Christmas tree recycling points


Mid Sussex District Council has set up Christmas tree recycling points at convenient locations across the district to help residents dispose of their trees when the festive fun is over.

The Council has arranged for 25 temporary Christmas tree drop-off points in towns and villages across the district, so there will be a place nearby where residents can recycle their real Christmas tree. All people have to do is take along their tree to the most convenient local site, place it in the marked bay and it will be taken away to be recycled locally.

Residents with a green garden waste collection bin can put their tree directly into it, as long as the lid can still close firmly. Alternatively, people can take their real tree along to one of the Household Waste Recycling Sites at Fairbridge Way in Burgess Hill or Imberhorne Lane in East Grinstead.

Sites will be open between 30 December 2017 and 12 January 2018 at the following locations.
