Christmas tree recycling information

Mid Sussex District Council is keen to help get 2015 off to a green start and has set up a number of local collection points for you to recycle your Christmas tree.  One of those locations is Ardingly Recreation Ground off the High Street.  This facility will be available from Friday, 2nd January to Friday, 16th January 2015.

Residents with a green garden waste collection bin can put their tree directly into it, as long as the lid can still close firmly. Alternatively, people can take their real tree along to one of the Household Waste Recycling Sites at Fairbridge Way in Burgess Hill or Imberhorne Lane in East Grinstead.
