Christmas Tree Disposal in January

Whitehorse News - January 2021

Here are some ways to recycle your living Christmas tree:

  • Drop your live tree off at the Whitehorse Recycling and Waste Centre (charges apply).
  • Arrange to have your tree mulched on site. Mulch is valuable to use either as compost or placed on your garden to assist retaining water in the soil.
  • Book a hard waste collection.

Please note: plastic trees cannot be recycled.

Hard waste collection

Have a clean out this summer and book a hard waste collection. Residents are entitled to two free hard waste collections each financial year. For information: Hard Waste Collection page

Please note: bookings may take up to two weeks in peak times.

Recycling and Waste Centre

Rubbish and recycling can be taken to the Recycling and Waste Centre for recycling or disposal. Visit our website for a list of accepted items. Fees may apply.

Battery recycling

Did you receive new gadgets or toys this Christmas? Remember to dispose of e-waste and batteries responsibly. Avoid placing e-waste in kerbside bins, as they have the potential to cause issues such as fires.

E-waste and batteries are accepted at the Recycling and Waste Centre for free.
