This year, we want to recycle even more of your waste than ever before – including your Christmas trees. You’d be surprised how many items from Christmas are capable of being recycled, rather than tossed in the bin.

We’ll be sending everyone our seasonal recycling guidelines (pdf 648KB), but you can double-check what can and can’t be put in your recycling sack here.

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 ready for recycling

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 on your collection day.

Please make sure our collection team can see it easily – so don’t put it behind a wall or fence and please don’t obstruct the pavement.

And don’t forget to remove the pot and any decorations.

Trees must be ready for collection by midday on your collection day between Tuesday 2 January and Monday 15 January, and will be collected in 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)
