Don’t dump your real Christmas tree – leave it out for the council

Did you splash out on a real Christmas tree? Now the festivities are over, don’t forget one of Greenwich Council’s better, under-advertised services – it’ll pick your tree up for free, from your home. Just leave it out on bin day.

If you see flytipping (or graffiti or other problems) while out and about (including when the council sweeps the streets and then leaves the bags out mouldering over New Year…), then use Fix My Street (or its Apple and Android apps) to report it. Reports go straight to the council and you can monitor what’s being done – for example, we see the witty graffiti artist in the Bramshot Avenue subway has made a comeback….

    I used the Fix my Street app over the Christmas period to report fly tipping on Coxmount Road and I can confirm the service works. I got regular alerts as to the status of the report and the rubbish was removed within a day of it being reported.

    The same graffiti artiste has also visited the alley at the side of Marks and Sparks at the Standard. It’s a different phrase but the same style devil.
    The Council Christmas tress collection has always been appreciated by our household. Good for the council for keeping it going. IIRC, Lewisham trees from Blackheath were migrating across the Heath one year!
