Evesham and Pershore recycling centre ready to accept decorations as twelfth night looms

Evesham Editorial 5th Jan, 2022   0

WITH twelfth night upon us, Evesham and Pershore residents are being reminded to make sure their real Christmas trees are recycled

Over six million trees are bought each year in the UK, most of which are thrown away and it’s important to remember that real trees can be recycled at one the Household Recycling Centres across Worcestershire.

Residents can use any of the Household Recycling Centres across the county. To find out the location of your nearest recycling centre, opening times and what range of materials each centre accepts, please visit www.letswasteless.com.

All the Household Recycling Centres are free for residents of Worcestershire to use and accept a wide variety of household materials for recycling, as well as green waste like your old Christmas tree.




Coun Tony Miller, cabinet member for Environment at Worcestershire County Council, said; “Household Recycling Centres are a great way to help the post-Christmas clear up. Taking a trip to a local recycling centre can make sure the things you don’t need any more can go where they’ll be of use either by being recycled or gain a new lease of life benefitting both local communities and the environment.”

The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust is also offering a collection service, covering some other areas of the county in return for a donation. Find out more at www.gkcct.org/event/christmas-treecycle-2022.


In addition to green waste, paper and card packaging, you can take along any extra plastic containers and cans that you can’t fit in your recycling bin. There’s a whole host of items you can take, such as unwanted electrical equipment, clothing, bric-a-brac and bikes that can be reused by local charities to raise vital funds. Please check www.letswasteless.com for which sites and what items they are able to reuse.
