Don’t forget to recycle your Christmas tree

YOU can do your bit in 2013 to help protect the environment by recycling your Christmas tree.

Councillor Alan Moir, convener of development and infrastructure, said: “If anyone wants to recycle their Christmas tree, but cannot take it to one of our tree recycling points, they can call the customer contact centre on 0300 123 4510, who will arrange for the tree to be picked up.”

You can drop off your tree from Thursday, January 3, at one of the council’s skips. There will be a skip at Homebase in Milngavie.
