CHRISTMAS is well and truly over – it's now time to recycle your tree.

For households, real Christmas trees can be placed in your brown bin for kerbside collection. The council has advised to cut the tree into manageable pieces and ensure that the lid will close and the tree is not wedged into the bin.

Alternatively, trees can be taken to any of the council household waste recycling centres.

Real Christmas trees can also be taken to Pollok Country Park, Alexandra Park and Kelvingrove Park, pictured above, until January 19 for recycling.

The trees collected in the brown bins or taken to recycling centres will be sent for composting while the trees taken to the parks will be chipped and shredded for use on site.

Chippings will be available for the public to take free of charge from Pollok Park.
