Residents across the area have different options for getting rid of their real Christmas trees.

Household tips across the county are accepting trees, but there may be alternative arrangements depending on where you live.

People living in towns and villages covered by Kettering Council are allowed to leave their trees alongside their grey or blue bins on their normal collection day.

A spokesman for the authority said: “If you have a real Christmas tree this year, it can be recycled after the festivities.

“You can leave your tree next to your grey or blue bin on your normal recycling day, during the week commencing January 5 or January 12.”

In Corby Council areas, residents may place their tree in their green bin.

A spokesman said: “Just chop your tree up and place it in your green bin so we can collect it. Please make sure that the lid is down.”

In the East Northamptonshire Council area, residents are being asked to take real trees, or fake trees if they wish, to their nearest recycling centre.

A spokesman for the authority added: “Alternatively, we are advising residents to cut up their real Christmas trees and recycle them in their garden waste services bin if they use that service.”

A spokesman for Wellingborough Council said residents can take their trees to recycling centres in the borough.

The authority does operate a green waste bin collection, but this is suspended over the winter months.
