Recycling Your Tree

Once you’ve enjoyed the last few cosy nights admiring the tree, extracting the last out of the festive spirit, eaten the last few left over chocolates you start to consider how you’re going to dispose of your beautiful Christmas tree. We’ve compiled a list of where you can bring your tree for recycling to get the most out of the environmentally friendly Christmas tree you chose.
