Residents can take their tree to one of the following council's temporary disposal sites:

Homebase, Enham Arch Retail Park, Andover

Wyevale Garden Centre, Salisbury Road, Andover

Rosebourne, Amesbury Road, Weyhill

Augusta Park Community Centre, East Anton Farm Road, Andover

The sites will be in operation from December 28, 2018 to January 14, 2019.

The council said all of the collected trees will be composted to produce Pro-Grow. Pro-Grow is a high quality organic soil conditioner produced within Hampshire by Project Integra and can be bought at any HWRC.
