The festive decorations come down today (Tuesday) and so Eastbourne Borough Council and East Sussex County Council are joining forces to urge the town’s residents to recycle their Christmas trees this January.

For those real Christmas trees that are too big to fit in residents’ personal garden waste bins, a number of sites have been set up across town where people can take their huge firs to be recycled.

These Christmas Tree Bringsites include Hampden Park, Princes Park, Gildredge Park, Tesco at Lottbridge Drove, ASDA, Homebase, B&Q and Langney Shopping Centre.

Council car parks are also hosting recycling sites, including Atlantic Drive, Fisherman’s Green, Treasure Island, Holly Place, Sevenoaks Road and College Road.

At each of the sites, there will be fenced off areas with signs indicating that real Christmas trees may be left there for recycling.

The Recycling Centre, on St Philip’s Avenue, is open from Monday to Thursday 9am-4pm, from 9am-3.30pm on Fridays and between 8am and noon on Saturdays and Sundays.

The Christmas Tree Bringsites will run across Eastbourne from Friday, January 2 until Sunday, January 25.
