How you recycle your tree differs depending on whether you subscribe to the council's garden waste service or not.

Garden waste subscribers are being asked to chop up their tree and dispose of it in the brown bin, which will be collected on the next scheduled collection day free of charge.

Garden waste collections are set to start again on Monday January 6, 2020.
