Denbighshire County Council are encouraging residents to recycle their Christmas trees this New Year, with a number of ecological options available.
Subscribers to the garden waste service can place suitably trimmed/ chopped up trees in their green bins or sacks for collection. Trees can also be taken to one of the three staffed Recycling Parks or taken to the Saturday morning services provided at Corwen and Llangollen.
Alternatively, there is a scheme to have old Christmas trees placed within the sand dunes of Barkby beach, Prestatyn and at Talacre beach, Flintshire.
For a donation, St Kentigern Hospice in St Asaph is offering to collect discarded Christmas trees on behalf of Denbighshire County Council and Flintshire County Council.
Christmas Trees will be placed on the sand dunes to help future flood defences and reconstruct the sand dunes.
To get involved in this scheme you need to register your details on the website www.charityxmastreecollection.com or over the phone on (01745) 536022 with the charity’s Fundraising Office, telling them where to pick the tree up and make your donation pledge.
The charity Christmas tree collection website closes Sunday 8th and collection of trees will take place on 13th, 14th and 15th of January. The drivers are all volunteers who have donated their time to the charity.
