The council will once again be offering a free Christmas tree recycling service for properties using the black wheeled bin service.

Please don't block pavements or roads with unwanted Christmas trees - the council will come and collect them from front gardens for free. The trees will all be shredded and turned into compost.

The council will be aiming to collect all unwanted trees from people’s front gardens on their scheduled refuse and recycling collection days between Monday, January 6 and Friday, January 17.

People should make sure that all decorations, pots and stands have been removed and are being reminded that this free service applies only to real trees not artificial ones.

You can also drop your Christmas tree off at designated collection points at:

  • Gunnersbury Park - Car park via Popes Lane W5 4NH
  • Hanworth Air Park - Car park opposite 158A Hounslow Road TW13 6AA
  • Hounslow Heath - Car park opposite, 495 - 497 Staines Road TW4 5AR 
  • Redlees Park - Worton Road car park (taped area only) TW7 6DW
  • Bedfont Lakes - Clockhouse Lane car park TW14 8QA

You can check on which day your Christmas tree will be collected here.

Refuse collection services up to and including Friday, January 10 will be made a day or two later than normal. The usual timetable will be fully restored on Monday, January 13.

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
