Peterborough City Council’s brown bin garden waste collections will be monthly in December and January.

The paid-for service, which was launched in May 2014, provides all year-round collection of garden waste. However, as the service is used less during December

Christmas trees can be taken to the Household Recycling Centre in Dogsthorpe, PE1 3TD.

It’s open seven days a week from 8am to 4pm, except on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. It will close at noon on Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

Alternatively, if you pay for your brown bin to be emptied you can chop your tree up and place it in there.
