Christmas tree collection dates in Lincoln

Lincoln residents clearing away their Christmas decorations for another year will be able to make use of free kerbside Christmas tree collections.

You can leave your real trees on the kerb during the usual bin collection day between January 12 and January 23.

People should leave trees next to their black bin, or purple sacks and must be left out by 7am but will be picked up separately to the bin collection.

The City of Lincoln Council are asking that trees are not left at the kerbside other than on refuse collection days during the two weeks.

Alternatively, people using the council’s garden waste service can chop up their tree and put it in their green bin. Green bin lids must still be secure.

Collections for charity

People in Lincoln looking to dispose of their Christmas trees after the festivities can also contact St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, who will be offering a recycling service for a donation of £5.

Trees will be collected from areas LN1 through to LN6.

To register your tree for collection go online or contact the fundraising team on 01522 540 300 or
