Anyone with a real Christmas tree can drop it off at one of Northampton Borough Council's tree collection points where it will be taken away for composting.
The collection points will be located at Billing Garden Store from Friday 6 January to Wednesday 11 January and at B&Q on Towcester Road from Thursday 12 January until noon on Friday 13 January.
Once collected trees will be taken to the council’s recycling centre in St James where they will be shredded to make compost.
Alternatively trees can be taken to one of the town’s Household Waste Recycling Centres or cut up and placed in householders’ brown wheelie bins ready for the next scheduled collection.
Households that do not have brown wheelie bins because they live in a black sack collection area can bag up cuttings and call Northampton Borough Council’s customer contact centre to arrange for a free collection.
