Christmas trees collected with rubbish in Bournemouth

First published in News

BOURNEMOUTH residents can put out their Christmas tree from next Monday on their usual rubbish collection day.

Bournemouth Borough Council will be collecting from Monday until Friday, January 17, for residents in Bournemouth on the rubbish collection days, but not the recycling days.

All decorations and stands must be removed from the trees.

If you miss your collection, trees can be disposed of at Millhams Household Recycling Centre which is open every day from 8am to 5pm over the winter period.

Bournemouth residents can also visit the Christchurch Household Recycling Centre at Wilverley Road.

Households in Poole can recycle their trees at Upton Country Park until Monday.

Trees are chipped on site and used to maintain the paths around the park, significantly reducing the cost and environmental impact of transporting them.

It's a pity that this tree collection scheme doesn't start a week earlier than this. Although traditionally the tree is supposed to come down on 12th night i.e. 6th January, if you had the misfortune of purchasing your Christmas tree from an outlet such as at Mannington where the trees are cut mid to late November, no amount of water top ups in the tree stand from 1st December to New Year's Day is going to prevent extensive needle drop. In this situation you are so keen to get rid of the tree quickly that to wait to mid January seems to much to bear.
