Your recycling and rubbish collection days will change over Christmas

Hammersmith & Fulham Council wishes you a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

To make your holiday celebrations go without a hitch, check your revised collection days for your bins and clear recycling sacks over the holidays. And just like last year, we are recycling Christmas trees during your normal recycling collection between 3 January and 13 January.

We want to help you recycle as much as possible over Christmas so that you can help H&F’s ambition to be the greenest borough in the country.

If you run out of clear recycling sacks with your extra Christmas recycling you can pick up more rolls from your local library or council buildings, such as Hammersmith Town Hall.

Christmas trees

If your recycling and rubbish is collected in sacks from outside your home, leave your real tree in your front garden or outside your property for recycling. It should be:

  • Clearly visible from the street and not hidden behind walls and plants
  • Not obstruct the pavement
  • Not have any pots or decorations on it

Trees must be ready for collection by midday on your collection day between Tuesday 3 January and Friday 13 January. But they will not be collected until the afternoon.

There are also designated collection points where you can take your real Christmas tree for recycling:

  • Fulham Palace Road Cemetery (opposite Queensmill Road)
  • Loris Road Community Gardens
  • New King's Road (on edge of Eel Brook Common)
  • Normand Park (opposite Lillie Road entrance)
  • Ravenscourt Park (by football pitch)
  • Wormwood Scrubs car park (off Scrubs Lane)
