Having a real Christmas tree/wreath/decorations this Christmas?

Are you keeping it real this Christmas?

If so, Buckinghamshire Recycling Centres can compost your tree after Christmas for free!
Just bring it to any of our nine household recycling centres and we’ll do the rest.
(We can only compost the real ones though, no baubles or tinsel either)

Tree too big to take to the recycling centre?  Not enough time? Want to help local charity?

1st Ivinghoe & Pitstone Scout Group will be collecting Christmas Trees to raise funds for a new scout hut on the following weekends: Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 January, plus Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 January 2020.  If you would like to donate £5 and have your tree collected, please contact Natalie on 07956 197777 or message them through their Facebook page “Friends of 1st Ivinghoe and Pitstone Scout Group”.

Subscribe to the Brown Bin Garden Waste service?

Residents who have subscribed to AVDC’s garden waste service can put natural Christmas trees, wreaths, holly and mistletoe in their brown garden waste bin. Trees should be cut into small pieces before placing in the brown bin and all decorations and metal should be removed first. Garden waste collections will recommence in February.

Please don’t fly-tip your Christmas trees, wreaths and plant displays into the woodland or fields around our village.  Fly-tipping is a criminal offence.
