Pembrokeshire County Council has once again teamed up with local charity FRAME to provide a free kerbside collection of real Christmas trees.

It follows a successful pilot scheme last year with over three tons of trees being collected before being shredded for compost.

Pembrokeshire County Council is a strategic partner of FRAME and works closely with the charity to provide environmental services for the County.

The service will commence from January 8 and householders wishing to have a collection can arrange one through calling Pembrokeshire County Council's contact centre on 01437 764551.

Residents have until January 10 to do so.

“We’re delighted to be offering this service again,” said cabinet member for the Environment and Welsh Language Councillor Cris Tomos.

“Working with FRAME we’re making it easy for residents to dispose of their real Christmas Trees once the festive season is over and I’ve no doubt it will prove as popular, if not more so, than it did last year.”

Other options for dealing with real Christmas trees include cutting them into small pieces and placing them in the Garden Waste Bin ready for collection in the spring or taking them to one of the County's six Civic Amenity and Recycling Centres.
