Free Christmas tree recycling

Buying a real Christmas tree each year from a Christmas tree farm is more environmentally friendly than keeping a synthetic tree, but only if you recycle your tree once the festivities are over. Find out how you can recycle your Christmas tree for free this year.

Some local councils in Australia will recycle your Christmas tree for free, turning it into mulch or woodchips to be used in local parks or children’s playgrounds. To find out if this is a service your local council offers, use the Contact My Local Council website to give your council a call.
