Residents in Oxford recycled 1,926 Christmas trees, according to the city council.

The trees are being turned into mulch, to use in the city’s parks and shrub beds.

John Tanner, executive board members for a cleaner, greener Oxford, thanked people who had handed a tree in.

He said: “I am really pleased so many people braved it through the snow to get their Christmas tree to a recycling point.

“By recycling your Christmas tree, you are reducing waste and helping to make Oxford’s parks and open spaces more beautiful.

“If you still have a Christmas trees you wish to recycle, please take it to Redbridge Recycling Centre.”

Sixteen Christmas tree collection points were located in Oxford’s parks and open spaces from Monday, January 4 to Thursday, January 14.
