More news, no ads


West Berkshire Council has confirmed it will be collecting and recycling real Christmas trees this year – but not until its garden and food waste collections restart next week.

The council announced a temporary suspension of the service from December 28 to January 8 in order to free up more drivers to ensure rubbish and recycling services could continue as scheduled over the festive period.

The garden and food waste collection service will restart from Monday, January 10, and the council has said it will be collecting real Christmas trees with the collection.

It has also said it will collect up to three open topped bags of excess garden waste in addition to the green bin on residents’ first collection.

A council spokesperson said: “We'll be collecting real Christmas trees on your next garden/food waste collection from January 10, 2022, so please place your real tree out then for us to collect.

“Please remember to remove all decorations and pots.”

“Trees larger than 4ft must be cut in half.

“If you can't wait that long, trees can be taken to the household waste recycling centres.

“Please remember to book an appointment before you visit.”
