As the 12 days of Christmas come to an end people are being reminded to recycle their Christmas trees.

Richmond Council’s waste and recycling team will collect real Christmas trees left outside on garden waste collection days until Wednesday, January 15.

Trees left out after these dates will still be collected but may not be recycled.

Residents are reminded to remove all decorations, pots and stands.

People can also take their trees to drop off points at Townmead Road Reuse and Recycling Centre, Wickes car park recycling site in Twickenham and Squires Garden Centre in Twickenham.
