Christmas tree recycling points open

From Brighton and Hove News

People were urged to recycle their Christmas trees at one of the recycling sites across Brighton and Hove.

Brighton and Hove City Council said that people could leave real trees at the sites from Monday 28 December.

The council said: “Every tree we collect will be turned into soil improver or compost and prevents more waste going to landfill.

“The Christmas tree recycling sites will be open from Monday 28 December 2015 to Friday 15 January 2016.

“You can also take trees to the green waste recycling section at one of our recycling centres throughout the year.

“We send them to a composting facility to be composted along with all of the other garden waste from the recycling centres.

“This goes through a composting process and turned into a soil conditioner which is then bagged and sold.

“Members of the public can buy this soil conditioner called ‘Pro Grow’ from any of the recycling centres and put on their gardens to improve the condition of their soil.”

The closest points to the SRRA area are –

  • Hollingbury Park, Ditchling Road – north entrance, opposite golf course entrance.
  • The Level, Union Road – behind the recycling point.
  • Preston Park, Preston Drove – north entrance, next to recycling site.
