After Christmas you can recycle your real Christmas tree - if you use the orange bag recycling collection put your tree out with your recycling in the week beginning 7 January 2013. If you do not have orange sack recycling you can still recycle your Christmas tree between 5 to 14 January 2013 at one of four sites across the borough:
  • Clapham Common, Windmill Drive, SW4
  • Kennington Park, Smith Street off St Agnes Place, SE11
  • Streatham Common, rear of Upper Common car park, SW16
  • Archbishops Park, Carlisle Lane, SE1
  • Lambeth Reuse and Recycling Centre, Vale Street, SE27 9PA (closed Tuesday and Wednesday)
