Rubbish and recycling
Collections for refuse/recycling will be unaffected this year
Recycle your Christmas tree
Please don’t leave your used Christmas trees on the pavement. You can take them to the following parks for recycling:
• Barnard Park
• Elthorne Park
• King’s Square
• Rosemary Gardens
You can also recycle your tree at the Reuse and Recycling Centre, Hornsey Street, N7.
There will be designated collection points on estates, and residents can contact caretakers for details. Residents in street properties can leave their Christmas tree at the edge of their property along with their regular green waste on their normal collection day.
