Recycle your Christmas tree next week
7:30am Friday 3rd January 2014 in News
RESIDENTS are being offered the chance to recycle their Christmas trees next week as part of a new initiative.
Tendring Council officers will be at six locations across the district to collect trees on January 11.
They will also answer any questions about the council’s overall recycling service.
Some collection venues have changed since the initiative was first announced.
Teams are at Jaywick Resource Centre from 12 noon to 1.30pm instead of Great Bentley Green.
They are at St Osyth Village Hall from 10am until 11.30am instead of Brightlingsea Town Council.
Other venues include Weeley Crematorium from 10am to 11.30am, Frinton’s Crescent Gardens from 12 noon to 1.30pm and Clacton’s Martello Car Park and Harwich’s Park Pavillion car park from 2pm to 3.30pm.
Trees will be shredded and the chippings reused.
