Recycle Christmas trees in Pocklington

Residents in Pocklington are being encouraged to recycle their Christmas trees.

The Greengrass Recycling Group have agreed to shred Christmas trees in the town. Their trailer is now in the West Green car park and residents are asked to leave trees either in the trailer or next to it and they will be recycled to use as mulch for public areas.

The group have also agreed to continue collecting green waste from houses on Pocklington’s Sherbuttgate estate from April. Last year they collected 31 tonnes of waste.
