Still time to recycle your Christmas tree

Leave your real tree in your front garden or outside your property for recycling

Not sure how to dispose of your Christmas tree this year?

Residents have until 15 January to make the most of our free collection service in Hammersmith & Fulham.

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

“Last year, thanks to residents, we recycled 106 tonnes of Christmas trees,” said Cllr Wesley Harcourt, H&F Cabinet Member for Environment, Transport and Residents’ Services.

“This year, we’d like to do even more.”

Please only put your tree out on the day of your usual rubbish collection. 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, until 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)

Household recycling – normal service resumes

Some collection dates for your household waste and recycling changed for the duration of the Christmas holidays.

The last changed day is for residents whose collection would have been Friday 5 January. This collection will now take place on Saturday 6 January.

All subsequent collections will return to the normal timetable.
