East Devon Council will turn them into compost for local parks and gardens
Residents across East Devon are being urged to make the most of East Devon’s improved recycling service during this Christmas and New Year.
Cllr Tom Wright, East Devon District Council’s portfolio holder for the environment, urged housholders to check the collection dates over the festive season.
“I would urge residents to read the information carefully, use the correct containers and recycle as much as they can,” he said.
“Also don’t forget you can have your real Christmas tree recycled in the New Year for free and all the pulp is used for mulch and composting in East Devon’s local parks.”

• Axminster, West Street car park, on Monday, January 7, from 12.30pm to 2.30pm
