Christmas Tree Recycling

Christmas trees can be recycled free of charge at the following locations from Tuesday 3rd of January to Friday 20th of January:

  • Athy, Meeting Lane
  • Clane, GAA Club
  • Maynooth, Council Depot, Leinster Street
  • 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 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.
