Recycle your Christmas Tree for free compost
Residents in Carmarthenshire are being urged to recycle their Christmas trees and get a free bag of compost.
If you take your real Christmas tree to one of the household waste recycling centres at Trostre (Llanelli), Wernddu (Ammanford), Nantycaws (Carmarthen) or Whitland you will get a free bag of Merlin’s Magic Compost courtesy of CWM Environmental Ltd.
The trees are taken to the In-Vessel Composting Unit at Nantycaws with the rest of the garden waste where they will be turned into compost/soil conditioner.
Executive Board Member for the Environment Cllr Hazel Evans said: “We produce a lot more rubbish at this time of year so it is very important we recycle as much of it as possible. Christmas trees are classed as green waste so please take them to your nearest recycling centre so that they can be made into compost.”
There are changes to recycling centre opening times over the festive period, visit www.carmarthenshire.gov.wales/recyclingcentres
