Recycle your Christmas tree
If you have opted-in to our garden waste collection service, you can recycle your real Christmas tree by cutting it up and placing it in your brown bin; or leaving it in manageable chunks (less than 120 cm or 4 feet tall) next to your brown bin. Please make sure all decorations, tree stands and pots are removed before recycling.
Alternatively, you can take it to one of the many collection points (listed below) across Eastbourne from 2 to 27 January 2018.
