How to Dispose of Your Real Christmas Tree?
Drop your fresh Christmas tree at the Lane Cove Council Depot, Lloyd Rees Drive, Lane Cove West – the spot is located just opposite the Lane Cove Scout Hall – do not dispose of in front of the depot. Make sure you have removed all the decorations and place the tree so the trunk is facing towards the scout hall.
Conditions: This service is provided for Christmas trees only. Only one tree per household. No additional green waste will be accepted. Proof of residency required. Please do not leave trees at the Depot or dump them in and around the Depot fence.
Last year we took our tree and the neighbour’s tree with us – so ask your neighbours or friends if they want to dispose of their tree with you.
