Residents will once again be able to have their real Christmas trees turned into chippings at one of the borough council’s shredding events on 8 January.
Natural wood chipping can be used as a chemical free form of weed suppressant or can be used to improve soil structure, making the most of unwanted Christmas trees.
The events are free for residents and take place as follows:
Saturday 8 January - 9am to 12 noon - Hunstanton Recreation Ground car park
Saturday 8 January - 1pm to 3pm - King’s Lynn, Gaywood Plant Nursery, Gayton Road
Only one tree is permitted per household. Decorations should be removed from the tree before it is brought for shredding.
Brown bin customers can dispose of real Christmas trees in their brown bins. If the tree does not fit into the bin it can be placed beside it on collection day. Real Christmas trees will not be collected with black bin refuse collection.
Christmas trees can also be taken to one of Norfolk County Council’s recycling centres. For more information visit www.norfolk.gov.uk/recycling.
