Christmas waste recycling details

Christmas tree
You can recycle real Christmas trees at Stanborough Park
Welwyn Hatfield has again made arrangements for the recycling of most festive season waste.

All used Christmas cards can be deposited in special collection boxes available to the end of January at the following locations:

  • Tesco
  • Asda (Hatfield)
  • WH Smith
  • Sainsburys (WGC)
  • Campus West (library entrance)
  • Jim McDonald Centre
  • Douglas Tilbe House
  • Welwyn Civic Centre
The council says the green recycling boxes, left at each house, should not be used for the disposal of Christmas cards.

A recycling facility has also been set up for real Christmas trees.

From Monday 5 January to Sunday 18 January, there will be a designated recycling zone at Stanborough Park North car park.

WHDC says people should remove all decorations and plastic bags. Recycled trees will be turned into mulch and compost for use in Stanborough Park.

Trees can also be recycled at any of the household waste sites. The Hertfordshire County Council Domestic Waste Site off the A414 road from Hatfield to Hertford is open daily from 8am to 4pm. The site will be closed on 1 January. Enquiries 08457 425000

All bottles, paper, and cans can be recycled at the local recycling centres. Recycling enquiries 01707 357818.

All offices of Welwyn Hatfield Council will be closed Thursday 1 January. Emergencies can be reported to the Council on 01707 357800 This number will operate over the holiday period.
