Christmas tree recycling
Yule love our Free Xmas tree-t
After this year’s festivities have ended, Sevenoaks District Council can collect and recycle your real Christmas tree for free.
The Council will collect any tree with a trunk of up to 89mm (3.5”) in diameter with its scheduled Garden Waste Collection Service from Monday 30 December until Friday 31 January, except for New Year’s Day.
Simply leave your tree by the boundary of your property, where you’d usually put your refuse and recycling sacks, the night before our Garden Waste Collection Service takes place in your road.
If you’re not sure when the service is scheduled for your road, call Sevenoaks District Council on 01732 227000 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be aware that the Council cannot take trees that are decorated or in pots or stands.
The good news is that all the trees we collect are turned into environmentally-friendly compost.
If your tree is too big for this service, you can recycle the tree at one of Kent County Council’s Household Waste Recycling sites. Call KCC on 03000 41 73 73 for locations and opening times.
