The festive celebrations may still be fresh in the memory, but the holidays are now well and truly over. As we all head back to work and school, the Christmas trees and decorations will be coming down, and if you had a real tree this year and want to dispose of it in environmentally-friendly fashion, Bromley Council is helping you do just that by opening five temporary garden waste sites this weekend.
These sites will provide a green - and convenient - way to dispose trees by composting them down, which is a more efficient and environmentally-friendly way to dispose of them than incineration or landfill.
On Saturday the 9th of January 2016, three sites will open from 11am to 4pm. These will be at Norman Park, Hook Farm Road, Bromley; Salt Depot, Shire Lane Spur, which is off Sevenoaks Road in Green Street Green; and the Cotmandene Crescent car park, which is located off Chipperfield Road in St Paul’s Cray.
There will also be two additional sites open on Sunday the10th from 8am until 12pm. These are situated at Charles Darwin School, Jail Lane, Biggin Hill; and the car park at Unicorn Primary School off Creswell Drive in Beckenham.
Do not leave trees or any other items at any of the sites outside of the opening these hours as this will be regarded as flytipping.
Will you be making use of these temporary garden waste sites? Do you know of any other green methods to dispose of your Christmas trees?
