Christmas tree recycling drop-off points

Christmas tree recycling drop-off points

From Saturday 1 January 2022 to Sunday 16 January 2022, real Christmas trees can be dropped off for recycling at selected car parks across the district. 

The collected trees will be chipped by the council and used as mulch. This reduces the distance trees travel to be processed and reused, saving carbon and helping the environment.  

Locations for Christmas tree drop-off points include:

  • Blackfield: Gang Warily Community Centre car park, SO45 1GA 
  • Brockenhurst: Brookley Road car park, SO42 7RA 
  • Burley: Burley coach park, BH24 4HW 
  • Fordingbridge: A338 slip road car park, SP6 1AN 
  • Hythe: New Road car park, SO45 6XP 
  • Lymington: Bath Road car park, SO41 3SE 
  • Lyndhurst: Village Centre car park, SO43 7BE 
  • Milford-on-Sea: Hurst Road East overflow car park (by Sturt Pond), SO41 0PY 
  • New Milton: Crossmead Avenue car park, BH25 6NF 
  • Ringwood: The Furlong long stay car park (follow signs to the designated area), BH24 1AY 
  • Totton: Rumbridge Street car park, SO40 9EA 

All decorations must be removed from the tree before taking it to a drop-off point. 

Trees must be left in the designated fenced bays only, and placed at the back to avoid blocking the entrance for others. 

Residents are asked to not leave Christmas trees in car parks that are not on the above list, or outside of the designated fenced bays, in disabled parking bays, on footpaths, by litter bins or recycling banks.
