More than 100 trees recycled in Potters Bar
MORE than 100 real Christmas trees were recycled at shredding sessions across Hertsmere.
The sessions were held at car parks in Potters Bar, Borehamwood, Bushey and Radlett to allow residents to dispose of their trees.
Borough councillor Jean Heywood, environment portfolio holder, said: “Lots more waste is created at Christmas time so it’s great residents have started the year by doing their bit for the environment.
“I’d like to thank everyone who took their tree along and John O’Conner Grounds Maintenance for providing the sessions on our behalf.”
Once shredded on site, the trees were taken away to be mixed with other materials to make mulch, which is put on shrub beds throughout the parks in the borough to help keep weeds down and moisture in the ground.

If you still need to get rid of your Christmas tree, cut it up and recycle it in your green bin, or take it to the household waste recycling centre in Cranborne Road.
