The twelfth night has passed over the weekend, and many people have now taken down their Christmas tree and decorations.
If you have had a real tree for your Christmas tree this year, Cheshire West and Chester Council has organised a free recycling service for residents.
The chipped trees will then be re-used as mulch by the council’s StreetCare teams.
Simply take your tree along to one of six locations across the borough between Monday 7th and Friday 11th January 2019.
The chipping service will be available at the following locations:
– Knights Grange, Winsford
– Hooton Golf Club, Ellesmere Port
– Westminster Park, Chester
– Whitby Park, Ellesmere Port
– Stanney Fields, Neston
– Castle Park, Frodsham
Cheshire West and Chester Council’s cabinet member for environment, Cllr Karen Shore said: “We’re pleased to be offering this service for free to encourage residents to recycle their trees after they have enjoyed them over Christmas.
“Please make sure there is no string or metal attached to your tree.
“Trained staff from the council’s StreetCare Services teams will then shred the trees into bark chippings which will be used on the authority’s parks and gardens.”
