The time has come - yes we need to take down our Christmas trees.
Now it’s 2018 households will be taking down the tinsel ready to return to work and school.
In the UK around 250 tonnes of Christmas trees that could have been recycled are simply thrown out.
So here are some ways you can recycle your real Christmas tree this year.

Household waste centres:
Kirklees Council’s household waste sites have a garden bin for Christmas trees. They are closed New Year’s Day. For locations and opening times visit / www.kirklees.gov.uk/beta/your-property-bins-recycling/household-waste-recycling-centres.aspx
In Calderdale trees recycled at any of the local Household Waste Recycling Centres in Calderdale will be used to make mulch and improve soils in parks and gardens in the borough.
Ogden Water Local Nature Reserve in Halifax recycles Christmas trees and they can be dropped off until the end of January.
Trees with roots will be planted up in the woodland to add to the diverse range of trees present and those that do not have roots will be used to create a border around the reservoir.
This border prevents anyone from accessing the water – helping to keep people safe. It also creates a habitat that is used by birds, mammals insects and plants to breed, grow and develop over the coming year.
Christmas trees can be dropped off outside the classroom, opposite the visitor centre until the end of January.
