Residents are being encouraged to recycle their real Christmas trees at one of six locations in Renfrewshire.

Two recycling centres and four public parks are available to ensure that trees are recycled correctly.

Local people can recycle their real Christmas tree from 3-9 January at the following places:

  • Barshaw Park, Paisley
  • Paisley Recycling Centre, 52 Underwood Road
  • Linwood Recycling Centre, Middleton Road
  • Lochwinnoch Public Park
  • Thomas Shanks Park, Johnstone
  • Barwood Park, Erskine

Councillor Cathy McEwan, Convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Infrastructure, Land and Environment Policy Board, said: “It’s never fun having to take down the Christmas tree, but when you do please make sure it’s recycled correctly at one of the six locations in Renfrewshire that we’ve made available.

“Recycling is so important so let’s work together to ensure that all the trees are recycled correctly and make it your New Year’s resolution to recycle as much as you possibly can throughout the year – starting with your tree.”
