How can we help you...

Christmas Tree Collections

Christmas Tree collections logo Households with wheeled bins

  • We will collect your tree from the kerbside on your general refuse
    day between Tuesday 7th and Monday 20th January 2014
  • Please put your tree out, beside your black bin, by 7am on your normal
    collection day. Please note that different vehicles will empty your bin
    and pick up your tree so they may be collected at different times.

Communal bins - both on and off street

  • See the list of On Street Recycling bins.
  • Collections begin on Tuesday 7th January 2014 for addresses on and south of Beach Boulevard, Justice Street, Castlegate, Union Street, Albyn Place, Queens Road and Skene Road.
  • Collections begin on Thursday 9th January 2014 for all addresses north of the above.
  • Please leave your tree by your communal bin or beside your
    communal enclosure, allowing access for the use and emptying
    of the bins.

Households with food and garden waste bins

  • Residents with this service can put their Christmas tree in their brown
    bin provided the tree is cut down to fit in the bin with the lid closed.

Recycling Centres

  • See all Recycling Centres.
  • Christmas trees can also be recycled at any of the four Household Waste and Recycling Centres in the city. Winter opening hours are:
    Monday to Friday (including Public Holidays) 10am to 4.45pm
    Saturday and Sunday 9am to 4.45pm
    Please note that the centres are closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day
