Recycle your Christmas tree!

West Oxfordshire District Council is encouraging residents to help the environment and recycle their real Christmas trees.

All people have to do is take their real Christmas trees along to the following locations and they will be turned into chippings to be used locally to create environmentally-friendly biomass energy.

Saturday 10th January

  • Burford: Guildenford car park, 10am-12 noon
  • Chipping Norton: New Street car park, 10am-3pm
  • Eynsham: Back Lane car park, 1pm-3pm
  • Witney: Woodford Way car park, 10am-3pm
  • Woodstock: Hensington Road car park, 10am-3pm

Sunday 11th January
  • Carterton: Black Bourton Road car park, 10am-3pm
  • Charlbury: Spendlove Centre, 10am-3pm
  • Long Hanborough: Playing Fields car park, 10am-12 noon
  • Tackley: Village Hall car park, 1pm-3pm
  • Witney: Woodford Way car park, 10am-3pm

Last Christmas, 10.5 tonnes of chippings were collected and used for biomass energy thanks to the Council’s chipping service.

Cllr David Harvey, Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “The free chipping service is part of the Council’s work towards reducing waste, increasing recycling and supporting renewable energy. It offers a good opportunity for householders to do their bit and we really hope they will take advantage of it.”

Cllr Harvey said he wished to thank Goodwood Tree Care for their help with providing the chippers.
