Christmas Tree Recycling

Christmas trees can be recycled free of charge at the following local Kildare County Council locations from Tuesday 3 January to Friday 20 January:

• Athy, Meeting Lane
• Naas, Monread Park
• Newbridge, Council Nursery, Naas Road

Please remove all Christmas decorations and wrapping from the tree before leaving at any of these sites. The trees are shredded on site and the mulch is then made available for community groups.

Recycling Centre Opening Hours
With all the extra packaging waste at Christmas, you may want to recycle this waste without filling up your recycling bin — the two recycling centres are Silliot Hill, Kilcullen (045 482229) and Gallows Hill, Athy (059 8640657), Sat 31st Dec 8am-1pm; Mon 2nd Jan CLOSED; Tue 3rd Jan normal opening hours.

Recycling Banks
Please be aware that the glass, can and textile banks across the county are used more in December and January than in other months. If banks are full, please be patient as the contractor will be working throughout the period to empty the banks.

If the banks are full, please bring the glass with you as leaving waste near the banks may result in a litter fine, and please, please, please, do NOT leave any boxes, bags or other waste behind you — we have cctv at many sites and you will receive a litter fine of €150 if you are caught.
