Residents instructed to book Christmas tree recycling collection

Christmas trees will be collected for recycling from around 7,000 Richmondshire households early next year, but residents must book in advance.

Every subscriber to the district council’s garden waste service is entitled to the one off January collection, but the service must be booked.

The booking line opens on December 7 at with householders having until January 6 to secure a slot.

Collections will take place from January 11 to 15.

Customers will be notified of the day for collection once the booking is confirmed.
