Real Christmas trees

How to compost real Christmas trees

Put your real Christmas tree in your green cart for composting.


  • Remove all ornaments, lights, tinsel and tree stands.

Size Restrictions

  • Cut the tree into 1.25 metre lengths (four feet).
  • The tree trunk must be less than 15 cm (six inches) in diameter.

Always fill your green cart first. If it's full, place your cut branches in paper yard waste bags and set at least 0.5 m (2 ft) to the side of your green cart for collection.
