Hammersmith and Fulham Council says that last year you helped recycle over 60 tonnes of Christmas trees, which were all composted.

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. It should:

- Be clearly visible from the street and not hidden behind walls or plants.
- Not cause an obstruction on the pavement
- Not have any decorations on it.

Trees must be ready for collection by midday on your normal weekday collection between today, Monday January 4 and Saturday January 16, but they will not be collected until the afternoon of your collection day.

There are designated collection points where you can take your real Christmas trees for recycling.

These are:
• Fulham Palace Road Cemetery (opposite Queensmill Road)
• Loris Road Community Gardens
• New Kings 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)

Trees will be composted and put to good use rather than going to waste.
