How to recycle your Christmas tree

Artificial Christmas trees

You can take your artificial Christmas trees to your local recycling centre.

Real Christmas trees

You can recycle your real Christmas tree by either:

  • Taking it to your local recycling centre
  • Or by chopping it into pieces and put them in your food and garden pink lidded bin. Please take off the base or wooden block if your tree has one and make sure the trunk is not thicker than your wrist. Wood thicker than your wrist is too big and can’t be put in your pink lidded food and garden bin. You can take large trunks and wooden bases to your local recycling centre.

Donate your tree

Alternatively Salford residents can get their real Christmas trees collected and recycled by the JustHelping charity.

JustHelping can collect from the following postcode areas:

  • M3
  • M5
  • M6
  • M27
  • M28
  • M30
  • M44
  • M50

All they ask in return is that you give a small donation to St Ann's Hospice, which they will arrange.

The Christmas trees collected will be chipped and used in local parks.

Please note collection days are 12 to 15 January 2023 and registration closes on 8 January 2023 at 11.59pm.
