Christmas trees - either: home compost, or take to a recycling

site or, if you have a garden waste subscription, undecorated

trees under 6ft can go out for collection on your usual garden

waste collection day from 7 January, or look for local charity

shredding/collections. (Last resort: send tree to costly, wasteful,

polluting landfill. Place next to your rubbish bin on your usual

collection day 7-18 January 2019).
