Christmas tree recycling

The request was successful.

Dear Local Government Association,

I would like to know:

How many real Christmas trees were collected from households across the UK after Christmas 2017?

Do local councils all collect and recycle real Christmas trees using in-house teams, or do some outsource this to private companies (and if so, how many outsource the service)?

How much did it cost local councils to collect and recycle real Christmas trees during Christmas 2017?

Yours faithfully,

C Gamble
