RESIDENTS of South Oxfordshire are being encouraged to recycle their Christmas trees.
Trees can be taken to the Oxfordshire County Council waste recycling centre at Oakley Wood or left next to residents brown bins for collection during a garden waste collection week.
They can also be taken to the following centres until Sunday, January 12: Toad Hall, Henley; Root One, Brightwell-cum-sotwell; the Herb Farm, Sonning Common; the Tree Barn, Christmas Common.
Trees can also be left in the car park at Ewelme recreation ground or at Watlington recreation ground.
In Henley, trees can also be recycled on Sunday and Monday between 10am and noon by taking them to Mill Meadows car park, where the town councils parks staff will shred them in return for a £2 donation to Henley in Bloom.
Revised waste collection dates will still be in place next week.
Garden waste collections will not take place until Thursday so crews can concentrate on collecting the extra household waste generated over the Christmas holiday.
Grey bin collections due today (Friday) will take place on Monday.
Green bins collections due next week will all take place the day after they were orginally scheduled.
