Where To Dispose Or Recycle Your Christmas Tree In Hong Kong
Disposing Christmas trees can be a bit of a pain, so while deciding between that Douglas Fir or Virginia pine, it’s a good idea to starting planning how you might want to do away with your tree after the festive season is over. If you want to opt for an environmentally-friendly disposal option, check out some of our recycling options below!
Sassy Tip: Many florists also offer disposal and recycling services at an additional cost, so don’t forget to tick the extra box when completing your order form.
Apart from offering high-quality trees, Christmas Tree Hong Kong is also recycling them this year! The cost of this service is $200. All recycled Christmas trees will be delivered to Hong Kong’s main Christmas Tree Recycling Centre in Tuen Mun, where the trees will be mulched down and used for landscaping and paths in local public parks.
As Hong Kong’s first recycling business park, EcoPark aims to provide long-term rentable land at an affordable cost to the recycling industry. Apart from food waste and rubber tyres, you can contribute to the environment by recycling your natural Christmas tree at its biomass section. While you’re on site, you may also want to check out its visitor centre, or take a quick guided tour to learn more about waste management and reduction!
Nothing says “Christmas” like giving back to those in need, so why not take this opportunity to show the environment some love? Organised by the Hong Kong Environmental Protection Department, the Christmas Trees Recycling Service allows tree owners to deliver unwanted Christmas trees to various collection points in Hong Kong for recycling.
While this year’s recycling schedule is not available yet, the service is usually offered for three to four days in early January. Keep an eye out for further updates on the official website!
Sassy Tip: Only natural Christmas trees are allowed, so don’t try to sneak your plastic Christmas tree in there!
