According to tradition, Twelfth Night (5th January) is the date when all Christmas decorations should be removed otherwise it will bring bad luck upon your home. You can recycle your tree at Sydenham Wells Park (Wells Park Road entrance) and at Mayow Road (Mayow Road entrance) until 28 January. The trees are chipped and used as mulch in parks around the borough.
Don’t be put off if you find there are no other trees at the entrance to the park – it will be due to the fact that they have already been picked up by Glendale. Just place your tree to one side away from the entrance itself.
Real trees only are accepted!
