Tree recycling: Hertsmere gets off to a green start with 193 Christmas trees recycled
A bumper crop of Christmas trees were shredded and recycled in Hertsmere this year.
Almost 200 trees were taken to locations in Radlett, Bushey, Borehamwood and Potters Bar over four days at the beginning of the month.
The 193 trees were shredded on site and taken away to be made into mulch which will be used on the borough’s shrub beds.
Councillor Jean Heywood, portfolio holder for the environment, said: "Thanks to everyone who helped to get 2013 off to such a ‘green’ start by recycling their trees in this way. Your trees will help our parks to stay in tip-top condition."
