Tuesday 27 December 2022 and Monday 2 January 2023.

Real Christmas Trees
This year, in line with most other local authorities, we will only collect real Christmas trees
from households that are subscribed to our Garden Waste Collection Service, and the trees
will only be collected from the boundary of those homes. It is important that trees are not
placed out in public areas for collection, as these will not be collected.
This information has been provided to every household in Cornwall via our annual service
leaflet, which is currently being delivered across the county.
