FAMILIES across Liverpool are being encouraged to recycle their Christmas trees in the new year.

Trees can be left in Alderfield Road, Speke; Calderstones Park car park in Calderstones Road; Croxteth Park, Oak Lane car park; Everton Park viewing platform in Netherfield Road North; Long Lane Recreation Ground in Garston; Gardeners Drive, Newsham Park; Otterspool Promenade car park; Sefton Park’s Ullet Gate; Stanley Park car park; Wavertree Park tennis centre car park; and Woolton Road boys club car park.

All the drop-off spots are accessible 24 hours a day, except Croxteth Park which is open 7am to 7pm.

People on the green garden waste recycling scheme can have their real trees collected from the kerbside with normal green waste collection on scheduled collection days.

You can also recycle Christmas cards at all WHSmith stores, Tesco supermarkets, TK Maxx stores and at M&S (excluding Simply Food stores), as part of The Woodland Trust’s Christmas card recycling scheme. It runs from January 2 to 30.

City residents urged to recycle

Liverpool City Council is urging residents to recycle as much of their festive waste as possible.

All glass bottles and jars, food and drink cans, wrapping paper, cards, plastic drink bottles and newspapers should be put in the blue wheelie bin.

Those who have a green wheelie bin can put their Christmas trees next to them at the kerbside ready for collection.

The council said the amount of household waste doubles at this time of year and fewer people recycle.

Real Christmas trees can also be taken to one of 12 collection points located across the city.

Councillor Berni Turner said: “When it comes to recycling, Liverpool residents have performed brilliantly this year and I’m hoping that this continues now that the festivities are over.

“In the past, statistics have shown that even though the amount of household waste doubles at this time of year, fewer people recycle.

“But, I’m hoping that people in this city are now so used to putting their blue wheelie bin out, they’ll carry on doing so into the New Year.”

    The PO Box listed on the back will accept your returned unwanted mail, by sending it back you can help the environment.

    We have been processing the no mail returns/’gone aways’ for the largest credit card issuer in UK since 1996. Their returns have been reduced from 5%/6% to under 2%.

    Large quantities of undelivered mail/’gone aways’ direct mail create a huge amount of waste paper

    Once the information required has been captured the waste paper accumulated can then be confidentially destroyed, pulped and recycled.

    This is ecologically sound and environmentally friendly – Making paper from recycled materials results in 74% less air pollution and 35% less water pollution

    One ton of paper from recycled pulp saves
