Christmas Tree Recycling Points
Reading Time: < 1 minute
Looking to start the New Year on the right foot? Why not recycle your Christmas Tree for FREE.
Give your old tree a new life and take advantage of the tree recycling points provided by Birmingham City Council – free of charge for citizens.
From January 1st to 24th, trees will be accepted at the following locations (the disposal points are clearly identified close to the main entrance to each park):
- Lickey Hills Country Park (at Warren Lane)
- Sheldon Country Park (Old Rectory Farm off Ragley Drive)
- Sutton Park (Visitor Centre adjacent to Town Gate)
All of the trees that are collected will be chipped and retained within the UK to create biomass electricity.
Cllr John O’Shea, Cabinet Member for Street Scene and Parks, said:
“If anyone is unable to replant or reuse their real Christmas tree this year, we are once again offering a free and convenient way to dispose of them. This scheme has always proved popular in the past and we are pleased to be able to make things simpler for people at the end of the festive period.”
If you are unable to access any of the dedicated Christmas tree recycling sites, you can still dispose of your unwanted tree at any of the city’s five Household Recycling Centres (HRCs).
You will need to book a slot to visit your local HRC, but the recently-upgraded system now allows same-day booking with just two hours’ notice – slots must be booked in advance via the HRC website.
Please note that there will be no collection location at Woodgate Valley Country Park this year due to the site’s use for COVID-19 testing.
