Christmas tree recycling - January 2020

Published: Friday, 27th December 2019

With this year’s Christmas and New Year celebrations drawing to an end soon, Birmingham City Council has confirmed its tree recycling service – free of charge for citizens.

From January 1 to 10, trees will be accepted at the following locations (All of the disposal points are clearly identified close to the main entrance to each park):

  • Lickey Hills Country Park (at Warren Lane)
  • Sheldon Country Park (Old Rectory Farm off Ragley Drive)
  • Sutton Park (Visitor Centre adjacent to Town Gate)
  • Woodgate Valley Country Park (Visitor Centre off Clapgate Lane)

All of the trees that are collected will be chipped and retained within the UK to create biomass electricity.

Cllr John O’Shea, Cabinet Member for Street Scene and Parks, said: “If anyone is unable to replant or reuse their real Christmas tree this year, we are offering a free and convenient way to dispose of them.

“This scheme has proved popular in the past and we are pleased to be able to make things simpler for citizens at the end of the festive period.”
