West Norfolk Council holding Christmas tree shredding events in King’s Lynn and Hunstanton





Residents will once again be able to have their real Christmas tree turned into chippings at one of West Norfolk Council’s shredding events.

Natural wood chipping can be used as a chemical-free form of weed suppressant or used to improve soil structure, making the most of unwanted festive trees.

The events are free for residents and take place at the start of the new year:

- Saturday, January 6: 9am-noon at the Hunstanton Recreation Ground car park

- Saturday, January: 1-3pm in Lynn, Gaywood Plant Nursery, Gayton Road

Only one tree is permitted per household. The council says that decorations should be removed from a tree before it is brought for shredding.

Residents with access to brown bins can dispose of real Christmas trees using them.

If a tree does not fit in a bin, it can be placed beside it on collection day. Real Christmas trees will not be collected with the black bin refuse collection.

Christmas trees can also be taken to one of Norfolk County Council’s recycling centres.
