Haringey Borough Council has offered to help get rid of unwanted Christmas trees in an effort to cut carbon emissions.

People in the borough can either cut up their trees and put them into their garden waste for collection or take the tree to a recycling centre located in Hornsey or Tottenham.

Alternatively they can take them to designated sites in eight parks across the borough from Monday, January 6, to Sunday, January 26.

The sites are located in the following parks:

  • Albert Road Recreation Ground (Staff yard) - Bidwell Gardens, N11
  • Bruce Castle Park (Staff yard) - Lordship Lane, N17
  • Down Lane Recreation Ground (Staff yard) - Park View Road, N17
  • Downhills Park (Staff yard) - Downhills Park Road, N17
  • Finsbury Park (Staff yard) - Endymion Road, N4
  • The Gardens Community Garden - Doncaster Gardens, N4
  • Priory Park (Staff yard) - Barrington Road, N8
  • Woodside Park (Staff yard) - High Road, N22
