Temporary waste sites are open this weekend
With the festive season over, Bromley residents can get rid of their Christmas trees at a number of temporary garden waste sites open this weekend.
On Saturday, the following three sites will be open across the borough between 11am and 4pm:
Bromley - Norman Park, Hook Farm road.
Green Street Green - Salt Depot, Shire Lane Spur off Sevenoaks Road
St Paul’s Cray - Cotmandene Crescent car park, off Chipperfield Road
On Sunday, two further sites will be open between 8am and noon.
Biggin Hill - Charles Darwin School, Jail Lane
Beckenham - Unicorn Primary school car park - off Creswell Drive
Waste services manager at Bromley council, John Bosley said: “Please do remember to take the decorations off the tree first and this service is only for real trees.
“All the garden waste collected is composted, which is by far the most efficient way to dispose of waste, avoiding the need to incinerate and the expensive landfill option.
“If you do subscribe to our pre-paid garden waste collection service, we will remove your tree as part of this although you might need to cut the tree to make sure it fits inside your wheelie bin.”
Any waste left at the sites outside of operating hours will be treated as flytipping.
