Bookings open for real Christmas tree collections

Archebion ar agor i gasglu coed Nadolig go iawn

Pembrokeshire residents are once again able to book a kerbside collection of their real Christmas tree over the festive period.

For a charge of £5 per tree, real Christmas trees will be collected from residents’ homes on a designated day before being sent to a Pembrokeshire facility for shredding and composting.

The fee has been introduced as part of a range of saving options approved by Council to support a balanced budget and ensure statutory elements of the service can continue in light of the unprecedented financial situation that the Council finds itself in.

The collection service will commence from Monday 8th January 2024 and householders wishing to have a collection can arrange one through your My Account or by calling the Council contact centre on 01437 764551.

Requests for collections will be available through the contact centre until the 5th January and via My Account until 7th January.

Cabinet Member for Residents’ Services, Councillor Rhys Sinnett, said: “We have been able to maintain the collection service for a small fee, however households can still take their Christmas trees to any of our Waste and Recycling Centres free of charge, bookings can be made via the PCC website, My Account or through the contact centre.

“These collections also contribute towards Pembrokeshire’s recycling performance and we are delighted to have recently been named one only five Authorities in Wales to have already met the Welsh Government’s recycling target of over 70%.”
