|There are a number of ways to dispose of your real Christmas tree this festive season:
🎄 Pilgrims Hospice tree recycling
We are pleased to again be supporting the charity collection of trees by Pilgrims Hospice. They will be running a collection service for a donation from the kerbside between 6 and 9 January 2023. You can register and donate online by midnight on 2 January 2023.
🎄 Garden waste collections
Alternatively, residents who intend to subscribe to garden waste collections in 2023 can chop their tree up and put it in their garden bin, ready for the first collection in February 2023.
🎄 Recycling centres
You can also take your tree to the Household Recycling Centres in either Canterbury and Herne Bay.
🎄 Canenco kerbside collection
Finally, you can wait for Canenco’s kerbside collection. Your real tree will be taken during either week starting 16 or 23 January. This will depend on which week your recycling is collected. On the Monday of recycling week, please put your tree out at the edge of your property and crews will attend at some point that week. It will not necessarily be the same day as the recycling collection itself. This is a drive-by collection and routes will be fluid, so we cannot give precise dates for each area. And the nature of this collection regrettably means we cannot provide an assisted service for Christmas trees. We will only be able to collect your real tree for recycling if it does not contain decorations.
