Free Christmas Tree Collection is Now Available
Make sure your tree doesn't obstruct the pavement

Wandsworth Council is again offering a free real Christmas tree recycling service between Tuesday January 4 and Friday January 14, 2022.

If you wish to take advantage of this service, put your tree out with your normal collection on your scheduled refuse collection day alongside your rubbish and recycling sacks. You can find your collection day here.

If you live in flats leave your tree near your communal refuse bin store, being careful not to block access.

Remove all decorations, pots and stands, and note that this service applies only to real trees, not artificial ones.

Residents are urged by the council to put their tree out carefully so they do not cause an obstruction. If trees block pavements crews have to be diverted away from their scheduled collections to deal with them, causing delays.

Residents with front gardens should place trees for collection alongside their rubbish and recycling sacks on their usual bin day - not on the street.

Those without front gardens can place them on the pavement directly in front of their home but only if it does not cause an obstruction.

These trees should not be left out for collection any earlier than 6.30pm on the day before the collection is due.

It may not be the same lorry that collects your normal waste and recycling collection so don’t worry if your bins are emptied and your recycling sacks taken away before your tree is collected.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
