PEOPLE are being reminded of their options for recycling their Christmas tree.
January 6, which falls on Monday, is Twelfth Night – the day when we traditionally take down our trees and decorations but some will want to do it before or after that date.
Residents can drop off their trees at their local household recycling centre – the nearest one for Bromsgrove is in Quantry Lane, off Money Lane, Romsley (DY9 9UU).
At the centre the tree will be sent for composting.
Coun Tony Miller, Cabinet Member for the Environment at Worcestershire County Council said; “Household Recycling Centres are a great way to help the post- Christmas clear up.
“Taking a trip to local recycling centre can make sure the things you don’t need any more can go where they’ll be of use either by being recycled or gain a new lease of life benefiting both local communities and the environment.”

Help the WWF when you get rid of your Christmas tree
Last week we reported how people can raise funds for the World Wildlife Fund at the same time as disposing of their tree, thanks to a local tree surgeon.
CJ Tree Surgeons will be able to turn old trees into chippings for mulch for gardens in return for a minimum donation of £5, with all the cash going to the World Wildlife Fund.
The team will be available at their base – at the bottom car park of The Queen’s Head in Stoke Pound, Bromsgrove – to receive the Christmas trees (remember to take the tinsel off) from 9am to 2pm next Saturday and Sunday, January 11 and 12.
