Christmas tree collections

Use this page to find out how to arrange a Christmas tree collection. 

By disposing of your tree responsibly, you are helping to minimise waste and protecting resources, ultimately helping to tackle the Climate and Ecological Emergencies.

We will collect your Christmas tree free of charge to ensure it is disposed of responsibly. In some areas, you may have the choice of opting for a charity collection instead, in exchange for a donation. In both cases,  the trees will be chipped and composted.

Charity collection and donation (BA1, BA2, BA3 or BS31)

If you live in BA1, BA2, BA3 or BS31, Dorothy House can collect your Christmas tree for a donation. Collections will take place from 12 January to 14 January 2024, so this is the quickest way to arrange disposal of your tree.

Dorothy House will only collect your tree if you have made a booking. You must book your charity collection by midnight on Sunday 7 January 2024.

Dorothy House will confirm your collection day when you complete your booking.

Register your tree

What you need to do

For your tree to be collected, you will need to take the following actions:

  • Remove all decorations
  • Cut the tree into pieces no bigger than 1.2m
  • Leave the tree at the front edge of your property

Council collection

If you live within Bath and North East Somerset, we will collect Christmas trees between 15 January and 9 February 2024 as part of our garden waste collection service.

Bookings will open on this page from Tuesday 2 January 2024.
