Be green and recycle your tree for FREE!

Enterprise Peterborough are providing containers across the city so you can dispose of your real Christmas trees so they can be shredded and recycled to make organic compost.

The containers will be available at  Notcutts, Barn Garden Centre and Peterborough Garden Park from Friday January 3 until Thursday January 16 during their normal opening hours.

Real Christmas trees can also be taken to the Householders’ Recycling Centre, which is open from 8am till 4pm, seven days a week.

Mick Robb, Head of Waste and Recycling told ESP – “This scheme allows residents to recycle their trees, instead of throwing them away and using up valuable landfill space, just please remove all the decorations and tinsel before dropping it off at one of the containers or the Recycling Centre on Welland Road.”
