DROOPING Christmas trees in Lewisham can be given new life after the festive season by being recycled and used to regenerate parks.

There are collection points open until January 27 where old trees will be chipped and used as mulch in the borough’s parks.

Lewisham Council is also urging residents to recycle Christmas wrapping paper and cards in green bins while unwanted clothes, blankets, curtains and textiles can be deposited at textile bins across the borough.

Lewisham Council cabinet member for customer services Councillor Susan Wise said: “Recycling your old Christmas tree in Lewisham couldn’t be easier, with a choice of convenient drop-off points around the borough.

“And I hope when residents are taking down their cards and sorting out their not-so-new clothes and textiles, they make good use of their green bins and the new textile bins. “Recycling is such an easy and good habit to develop.”
