Christmas trees are shredded and used as soil conditioner

Councils across Herefordshire and Worcestershire are urging people to recycle their Christmas trees.

Worcester City Council was the first in the country to offer the service in 1991.

Last year they recycled six tonnes of Christmas trees.

Mike Harrison, head of Cleaner and Greener, said: "The scheme has become a great success, with the number of residents recycling trees increasing every year."

The trees are shredded and composted before being turned into a soil conditioner which can be returned to the garden.
