How do I get rid of a Christmas tree in Stamford, Bourne, the Deepings and Rutland?
Real Christmas trees can be 'recycled' across the area thanks to several schemes.

People without a green bin can leave it next to a neighbour's green bin and it will be collected, even if there are several trees - but to keep up the neighbourly spirit, it's best to mention it to them first.
