How to dispose of your Christmas tree in Brussels

23:00 03/01/2018

Waste collectors in Brussels have already started picking up used Christmas trees - and disposing of yours is straight-forward.

Real trees can be left outside your front door on the normal collection day for green-bag garden waste. If you are unsure when this is, enter your address into this form for the details.

Bruxelles Propreté says you must remove the pot and all decorations, but you may leave the wooden stand. It recommends that you do not leave the tree out overnight, because of the current windy weather conditions.

Artificial trees are treated as bulky household items. You can either make a booking by telephone for the tree to be collected or take it to a container park.
