Christmas and the environment

Kildare County Council operates a service for the public to dispose of Christmas trees at the following locations:


  • Athy, Meeting Lane
  • Clane, GAA Club
  • Maynooth, Council Depot, Leinster Street
  • Naas, Fairgreen
  • Newbridge, Council Nursery, Naas Road
  • Monasterevin Soccer Club, Barrett Park, Canal Road (open to the public on Sat 5th and Sat 12th Jan)


Trees are shredded on site and used as mulch by a number of community groups. Please note that Christmas wreaths are not accepted as they contain metal and so cannot be put in the shredder.

The sites will be open to the public from Saturday 5th to Saturday 19th of January inclusive (other than Monasterevin).
