Christmas tree recycling
Christmas trees will be shredded and turned into compost to be used in Hackney's parks and gardens. Remember to take all the decorations off and save them for next year.
We'll collect your tree from your home from 3 - 13 January, on your rubbish and recycling day. Put your tree out at the front boundary of your property by 7am, with all decorations removed.
If you live in a block or estate, leave it next to your communal bins (not inside them), making sure you do not block access to the bins.
Normal garden waste collections will be suspended for this period, with standard service resuming on 16 January.
You can take your tree to Millfields Depot, Millfields Road, E5 0AR before 31 January. 8am - 3pm, Mondays to Fridays or 8am - 12 noon on Saturdays.
