Christmas tree

Ealing Council is helping residents get the new year off to a green start with a number of options available to help them recycle their Christmas trees.

Between Wednesday 2 January 2019 and Friday 25 January 2019, you can leave your tree on the front edge of your property, to have it taken away for recycling. Trees will be collected on the same day as your refuse collection (black bin) each alternate week.

Tree trunks must not exceed 20cm in diameter, or be more than six feet tall (taller trees can be cut in two). Please ensure all decorations are removed. The service is in place for real trees only, not synthetic ones.

Alternatively, you can also take your Christmas trees to the listed council parks and open spaces up until 31 January 2019, or to one of the reuse and recycling centres.

Residents can leave their trees in the following locations:

Reuse and recycling centres
  • Acton Reuse and recycling centre, Stirling Road, W3 8DJ
  • Greenford Reuse and recycling centre, Greenford Road, UB6 9AP
Parks/open spaces
  • Acton Park
  • Berkeley Fields (Berkeley Avenue)
  • Churchfields Park Hanwell
  • Cleveland Park
  • Ealing Central Sports Ground (Horsenden Lane South)
  • Ealing Common (Junction of Grange Road and The Common)
  • Elthorne Park (Boston Road)
  • Islip Manor Park (Eastcote Lane)
  • North Acton Playing Fields
  • Perivale Park (Cowgate Road)
  • Pitshanger Park
  • Ravenor Park (Oldfield Lane South and Ruislip Road)
  • Rectory Park (Parkfield Drive)
  • Southall Park (Green Drive)
  • Southfields Recreation Ground (Southfield Road)
  • Spikes Bridge Park (West Avenue)
  • Springfield Gardens (Rosemont Road)
  • Walpole Park (Lammas Park Gardens)

Residents must leave trees in the designated areas only and ensure they do not block access, pathways or the public highway.

Councillor Mik Sabiers, cabinet member for environment and highways, said: “We remain committed to making it as easy as possible for residents to recycle and ultimately ensure that Ealing continues to be a cleaner and greener place to live.

“All of the Christmas trees that we collect get turned into nutrient-rich compost so it’s a great way to get your new year off to a green start.”
