How can I get rid of my Christmas tree?

Once the festivities are over, households can dispose of their real Christmas tree at the Household Waste Recycling Centre free of charge.

Christmas Trees will be accepted from Sunday, December 27.

Residents must book an appointment to dispose of their tree at the HWRC.

Alternatively Hartlepool Borough Council is offering a collection service for real trees from Tuesday, January 5.

Residents wishing to use this service must book in for the collection to take place via www.hartlepool.gov.uk/collectmytree or telephone (01429) 523 333.

People must ensure all decorations are removed prior to disposal and the council also says it reserves the right to cancel collections if staffing levels are affected by the pandemic.
