Get rid of your trees the environmentally-friendly way in January.
Anyone with a real Christmas tree that is no longer needed as the festive season comes to an end can recycle it thanks to the help of Birmingham City Council.
From January 5th to 28th, trees can be dropped off at points set up near the entrances of:
Lickey Hills – Warren Lane, Lickey, Birmingham B45 8ER
Woodgate Valley Country Park – Clapgate Lane, Bartley Green, Birmingham, B32 3DS
Sheldon Country Park – Ragley Drive, Church Road, Sheldon, Birmingham, B26 3TU
Sutton Park – Visitor centre – Town Gate, Park Road, Sutton Coldfield, B73 6BT
There is no cost for the service, and anyone who wants to take advantage of this offer should drop their tree off between 9am and 4pm any day of the week.
The trees are run through a shredder and the materials then used either used within parks as a mulch or added in to biomass energy feedstock which is used for the production of electricity.
