Burnham-On-Sea garden centre offers Christmas tree recycling service

Go green and recycle your Christmas tree and cards when you've finished with them - that's the plea from a Burnham-On-Sea garden centre, which is launching its own festive recycling service.

Christmas tree recyclingSanders Garden World is offering a free shredding and mulching service for its customers from January 3rd until January 15th.

Trees can be delivered to the garden centre during these dates and the mulch can be collected between January 16th and 23rd.

In an attempt to lessen the impact on the environment, the Royal Horticultural Society says that traditional Christmas trees which have been cut and are not potted up should be shredded after they are no longer required in the home.

Garden centre Managing Director Peter Burks added: "The RHS says six million cut Christmas trees are bought each year in the UK. Last year, around three-quarters of a million of those were recycled. This means that there is definitely room for improvement."

Garden World is also backing conservation charity The Woodland Trust in its campaign to collect and recycle 60 million Christmas cards this New Year. To recycle your cards, take them to Garden World between January 3rd and 30th.
