Christmas trees

When it's time to say goodbye to your Christmas tree, please cut it up and place in inside the green bin for recycling with the lid closed. Trees with decorations left on them cannot be taken.

Artificial trees can be taken to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre:

Support Claire House children’s hospice and donate your real Christmas tree

The Claire House Christmas tree collection is a new initiative which allows you to recycle your unwanted tree and raise much needed funds for a local hospice.  A minimum donation of £5 is suggested per collection.

The team will collect your tree over the weekend of 11 and 12 January 2014 to be recycled, with collections taking place in Frodsham, Elton, Helsby, Mickle Trafford, Upton, Hoole, Newton, Westminster Park and Caldy Valley.

The Claire House team are looking for volunteers to help out with this initiative.
