Find your nearest Christmas tree recycling point

Real Christmas trees can be recycled for free at collection points across the borough.

Recycling your tree can help cut carbon emissions, protect our parks and create a greener Lewisham. The trees are ground down into wood chippings which are used in local parks.  

Please make sure that you’ve removed any lights and decorations before leaving your tree neatly for collection.  

Trees can be collected until the end of January at the following sites:
