It’s the end of the Christmas season, and with many people returning to work and school today, it’s also time to take down the Christmas tree.
If you are facing the sad task of taking down the decorations for another year, it’s a good time to look up where to recycle the tree.
Donegal County Council has 16 drop off points throughout the County for the public to bring their real Christmas Tree for recycling free of charge.
The local authority also has an interactive map for you to find your nearest recycling location: http://donegal.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=957ac7e7b5b448b39e60b7177a11a43a
