Christmas tree collections 

We’ll be collecting real Christmas trees for free. They can be put out for collection from 2 January 2024

Collection from your home

To get your real Christmas tree collected, leave it next to your bins on your collection day. 

You must:

  • remove your tree from any pot you may have
  • remove all decorations, as these cannot be recycled

Trees take up a lot of space, so we can only collect a limited number each day. 

If your tree is not collected, please take it back in and leave it next to your bins again on your next collection day.


If you live on an estate, please leave your real Christmas tree by the bin areas or bulky waste collection areas.

Take it to a recycling site

You can also book a slot to take your tree to one of our recycling sites:

Alternatively, you can bring your real Christmas trees to the collection point in Clapham Common, off Windmill Drive.

Please note: If your collection day is Christmas Day and New Year's Day, we will collect the day after instead.
