Sorry to already be talking about taking it down, however RDC has announced its arrangements for tree collection and disposal at recycling centres.

Christmas trees – collection service for garden waste subscribers

If you currently subscribe to the garden waste collection service, you will need to book your special Christmas collection in advance to have your Christmas tree picked up and your green bin emptied. This collection will take place between 11-15 January 2021. Any Christmas trees must be placed at the kerbside next to your green bin by 6.30 am on your confirmed collection day.

You can book this collection service online from 7 December until 5.15pm on 6 January 2021.

Book your January 2021 Christmas tree/garden bin collection

Check RDC’s Christmas tree collection dates page to view the dates of when this collection service will be taking place in your area. Once you have booked your slot for this collection online you will automatically receive an email confirming your collection day.
