Please help us make Bolton greener this CHristmas and New Year by recycling as much as you can using your recycling containers.

Recycle your Christmas tree

This year Bolton Council is working in partnership with Bolton Community Transport Furniture Services (BCTFS) to recycle real Christmas trees.

For a charge of £10 BCTFS will arrange to have your Christmas tree collected and recycled.

Call 01204 364777 before Wednesday 7 January 2015 to arrange collection. Alternatively, Christmas trees can be cut up and placed in the green bin for collection. Please make sure the lid is shut. You can also take them to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre.
