Christmas Tree recycling

Arrangements have been made for Christmas tree recycling at Stanborough Park between Saturday, January 4, and January 19.

Welwyn Hatfield District Council says trees should be left in the car park on the old swimming pool side in the small area near the road. The area will be signposted.

The trees should be bare with all decorations removed. According to the council, the facility is for real Christmas trees only and no other waste, including garden waste, should be left.

The WHDC grounds maintenance team at Stanborough Park will then use a wood chipper to reduce the trees to compost and bark mulch. This recycled material will then be distributed on shrub beds and paths around the park improving the environment for visitors.

The 19 Household Waste and Recycling Centres across Hertfordshire are open all days except January 1.

For further information about how to reduce, reuse and recycle your household waste this Christmas and throughout next year contact the WasteAware help line on 08457-425000 or visit the WasteAware website.

The local waste disposal centres are at Potters Bar where the winter opening hours are Mon-Fri 08:00-16:00 and Sat-Sun 09:00-16:00, and Cole Green where the winter opening hours are Mon-Fri 11:00-16:30 and Sat-Sun 09:00-16:00.
