Christmas tree disposal

Christmas tree disposal guide

You can dispose your old tree at any of our Resource Recovery Centres or at the Flinders hopper for only $5 between 2 - 16 January.

Our Resource Recovery Centres are in Rye, Tyabb and Mornington. To view full addresses, visit mornpen.vic.gov.au/waste.

Residents can also use tip vouchers to dispose of the tree. It is recommended to include additional green waste during your trip to make the most of your cubic metre.

Those residents with a green waste bin can dispose of prunings and branches (max 10cm in diameter and 30cm in len­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­gth) via the kerbside green waste bin for free.

If you have a plastic tree that is at the end of its lifespan, you can dispose of this in your kerbside rubbish bin. Alternatively, pack your plastic tree away and use it year after year.
