If you would like us to collect your real Christmas tree you must remember to remove all decorations then leave it next to your green-top bin on your normal collection day. Make sure you leave your tree where it can be easily seen by the collection team.
Take it to one of these designated places, or pay £15 to have the council collect it from your door. Note that the pins on the map are VERY approximate – please correct them if they’re in the wrong places.
I sometimes think local councils should be unified into a single body. I can’t understand why the two adjacent councils differ so much in their provision of services.
A couple of photos from flickr user Beglen. Great shot of the litter left on the heath outside the Princess of Wales pub – apparently all cleaned up now. That light can make anything look vividly beautiful. And a random drummer on the heath. Enjoy the sunshine!
I’ll definitely stop the terrible headline puns soon, I promise. It seems that Greenwich council will pick up your old tree with their usual green bin collections. Lewisham council on the other hand want you to go to one of these locations to drop off your tree. I’ve no idea where you put the tree when you get there:
* Hilly Fields – Hilly Fields Crescent entrance, SE4
* Deptford Park – Scawen Road entrance, SE8
* Telegraph Hill – Pepys Road/Kitto Road entrance, SE14
* Talbot Place – Blackheath, SE3
* Mountsfield Park – entrance top of George Lane, SE13
* Sydenham Wells Park – Wells Park Road entrance, SE26
* Forster Memorial Park – entrance top of Whitefoot Lane, SE6
* Northbrook Park – Baring Road entrance, SE12
* Mayow Park – Mayow Road entrance, SE23
* Chinbrook Meadows – Amblecote Road, SE12
* Manor House Gardens – Old Road entrance, SE13
* Beckenham Place Park – Old Bromley Road entrance, BR3
Again, two wildly different approaches from the two adjacent councils. Lucky Greenwich people…
