Richmondshire District Council

Recycling your Christmas tree

Christmas trees will be collected for recycling from around 7,000 Richmondshire households early next year.

Every subscriber to the District Council’s garden waste service is entitled to the one off January collection – but the service must be booked.

You can now book for this collection on our Christmas tree collection page. Householders have until January 4 to secure a slot.

Collections will take place from January 10 to 18. Customers will be notified of the day for collection once the booking is confirmed. Christmas trees and green bins must be at the kerbside by 6.30am on collection day.

Residents not on the green waste subscription service can still recycle their trees. They will not be picked up from outside homes but can be taken to one of the Council’s Christmas tree recycling collection points to be picked up on the following days:

Monday 10 January - Hawes Recycling centre

Tuesday 11 January - Leyburn Recycling Centre

Thursday 13 January - Brompton on Swale Recycling Centre

Thursday 13 January - Colburn Recycling Centre

Friday 14 January - Nuns Close Recycling Centre, Richmond

Saturday 15 January - Reeth Recycling Centre

Locations of these sites can be found on our recycling sites page. Trees will only be collected from the sites on these days so please leave trees at them as close as possible to these dates.
