Richmondshire residents have until 5.15pm on Wednesday to book their Christmas tree collection.

The service is only available for garden waste subscribers

If you currently subscribe to the district council’s garden waste collection service, you will need to book your Christmas collection in advance to have your Christmas tree picked up and your green bin emptied.

This collection will take place between January 11 and 15.

Any Christmas trees must be placed at the kerbside next to your green bin by 6.30am on your confirmed collection day.
