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. One of the big benefits of choosing a real Christmas Tree is that it is fully recyclable. The County Councils do a fantastic job each year of recycling Christmas Trees to create bark chippings for use in parks. 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.

The four Dublin councils have made it very easy to dispose of your tree - here’s where you can bring it to - please check the Council websites for opening hours:
