Christmas decorations will be coming down this month as the festive season comes to a close.
In the Royal Borough, Christmas trees can be dropped off at any of the collection sites around the borough until Monday, January 21.
Drop-off points include Stafferton Way recycling centre, Ockwells Park, Bray High Street car park, Holyport Memorial Hall car park, Stubbings Nursery, Hurley High Street car park and Knowl Hill Village Hall Car Park.
If you have a green bin, trees can be left next to it on collection day for recycling and smaller trees can be cut up and put into your garden waste.
If your tree is over seven feet tall, it will need to be sawn into two pieces.
Only real trees can be recycled. Pots, lights, and decorations should be removed first.
Green bin collections resume from week commencing Monday, January 7 for week two collections, and from week commencing Monday, January 14 for week one collections, and are collected the same day as other bins.
In Wycombe District, cut up your trees and put them into your garden bin. If you do not have access to a garden waste bin, you can recycle Christmas trees at your nearest household recycling centre, which can be viewed on the Bucks County Council website.
South Bucks District Council's garden waste bin collection service is suspended until Monday. Residents are asked to cut their trees into smaller pieces and place them next to their garden bins or go to their nearest household recycling centres.
Christmas trees can also be taken to the Stoke Poges Memorial Gardens in Church Lane, Slough until Monday, January 14 and dropped off under the large oak tree, near the entrance to the gardens.
Slough Borough Council residents are asked to chop off the branches from their Christmas trees and put them in their green waste bins or to compost them themselves.
Small stumps can be put in green bins but larger ones should be taken to the household waste and recycling centres in White Hart Road in Chalvey, Langley Park Road in Langley or Crowpiece Lane in Burnham.
