Recycle your tree into mulch

Don’t pine for your old Christmas tree, because our annual Christmas tree recycling drive is on again.

Last year, we recycled nearly 572 trees in the City of Sydney, giving them a second life – the trees collected were chipped into mulch.

Order a pick-up for one of the dates below. Bookings are essential and must be made by 2pm the Tuesday before collections.

No artificial trees, please.

This service is for City of Sydney council residents only. 

You can book online or call 02 9265 9333 to book.

Just make sure you specify that your item is a tree and remember to place your tree on the kerb out in the street the night before collection.

Free Christmas tree collection dates are Wednesday 30 December, Wednesday 6 January, Wednesday 13 January,Wednesday 20 January, Wednesday 27 January
