Those subscribed to the borough council's garden waste collection service also have the option using their brown garden waste bins to recycle their trees. Small trees can go in the bin but trees taller than two meters (six feet) will need to be cut in half and put out next to the bin.
Lead member for clean and green environment, Councillor Jim Mason, said: "The Treecycle scheme has been running for 12 years and is hugely popular with Tewkesbury borough residents. It’s great to know that, through the Treecycle scheme, we’re able to prevent thousands of trees from being sent to landfill.”
