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.
Where to recycle
The household waste sites at Hereford, Leominster, Ross-on-Wye, Bromyard and Ledbury will all recycle Christmas trees.
Christmas trees can be recycled at the Household Recycling Centre, Park Farm Industrial Estate, Crossgates Road, Redditch, B98 7SN.
Christmas trees can be recycled at the Household Waste Recycling Centres on Bilford Road and Hallow Road, Homebase stores on Bath Road and Hylton Road, or at Bloom's Garden Centre on Droitwich Road.
