Christmas tree recycling

We're waiting for Claire Gamble to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear West London Waste Authority,

I would like to know:

How many real Christmas trees were thrown out and collected from households in your authority after Christmas 2017?

Did you carry out this service in-house or did you outsource it?

How much did it cost to carry out this service?

Yours faithfully,

C Gamble

Hi Claire,

Thanks for getting in contact with us about the recycling of Christmas trees.

The collection and numbers of Christmas trees from each of the boroughs is not information we hold unfortunately. Each of our 6 boroughs have a garden waste collection service and every new year, each individual borough uses their garden waste service to collect real Christmas trees from residents.

As the garden waste service is sorted out by each council individually, it will be collected by their own contractors (in house or outsourced). As the waste disposal authority, WLWA would only have the total amount of green waste from our boroughs but we wouldn’t be able to determine what portion or percentage of that would actually be Christmas trees.
However, it's quite possible that the boroughs may have an estimate of how many they collect every year but that would mean you having to contact each of them individually.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
