Swindon Borough Council are reminding people that they will collect any old real Christmas trees that people had had hanging around and may not know what to do with.

Council crews will be collecting any tree left outside their home that is visible from the road from the road up until January 31.

People are reminded to remove all lights and decorations and to make sure it can be lifted safely by two people, if it is very large and cannot it should be cut down into smaller pieces.

This is a free service and is available to all households in the Borough.
