Christmas tree collections 

We’ll be collecting real Christmas trees for free. They can be put out for collection until 31 January 2023

Collection from your home

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

  • not leave your tree in a pot
  • remove any 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

Alternatively, you can also book a slot to take your tree to one of our recycling sites:

There's also a temporary site on Clapham Common off Windmill Drive where trees can be taken between 2-13 January 2023.

Please note: there will be no rubbish and recycling collection day changes this Christmas and New Year.
