Renewable offering on the table once again for your Christmas trees


share close

As this year’s festivities draw to a close, Birmingham City Council has again set up a number of locations for residents to recycle their Christmas trees. 

Disposal points for anyone with an unwanted real tree are clearly identified close to the main entrance to each of the following parks:

  • Cotteridge Park (Next to the car park on Franklin Road, B30 2HF)
  • Sutton Park (Visitor Centre, adjacent to Town Gate, B74 2YT)
  • Lickey Hills Country Park (at Warren Lane, B45 8ER)
  • Sheldon Country Park (Old Rectory Farm, off Ragley Drive, B26 3TU)

Please make sure all plastic or metal is removed from the tree prior to drop off.

There is no cost for the service, which runs from December 26 to January 31, and anyone who wants to take advantage of this offer should drop their tree off between 9am and 4pm (any day of the week).

Alternatively, there is a charity service provided by St Mary’s Hospice. For a donation, the charity will arrange for your tree to be collected (subject to availability/living in a postcode area covered by the service), without the need to leave the comfort of your own home.

Find out more about the Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice service via the hospice’s dedicated Treecycling webpage.

Cllr John O’Shea, Cabinet Member for Street Scene and Parks at Birmingham City Council, said: “They [Christmas Trees] aren’t the easiest items to get rid of, so this gives people a simple and convenient option rather than making a booking for one of our Household Recycling Centres.

“There are also some other great options out there which benefit good causes for a small fee, such as the St Mary’s Hospice service, which are a fantastic alternative in the season of goodwill.”
