Disposing of the Christmas tree can be a mission each year

For many on Tyneside, it's time to take down the decorations and begin the tricky task of disposing of the Christmas tree.

Most Brits follow the rough guidelines of January 5 and January 6 as the dates to have their festive ornaments down by, in correlation with the Twelfth Night and Epiphany, however some prefer to get a head start.

For those with real Christmas trees, disposing of the beast can provide a bit of a headache every year.

NewcastleWorld scoured the web to see which companies locals were recommending to one another to help get rid of the tree.

Mike Brannigan, who runs MB Gardening Services North Tyneside, is one name mentioned by some.

He's running a programme offering to collect and recycle your tree from £6.

The Real Christmas Tree Company also come recommended, offering a similar service from £5.

Elsewhere, some opted for AM Waste Management, who is also providing the service for £5.

Many locals are choosing to pay a little more to have their tree taken off their hands, but are doing so for a good cause.

St. Oswald's Hospice is collecting and recycling trees from a large number of NE postcodes and is asking for a suggested donation of £10.

St. Oswald’s are a Gosforth-based charity who provide specialist and expert care to adults and children with life-limiting conditions.

If you're wanting to recycle your tree yourself, rather than having someone round to do it, you'll have to take the tree to a local recycling point.

For those in Newcastle, sites are at Brunswick, Byker and Walbottle.

In Gateshead, they are at Wrekenton and Blaydon.

In North Tyneside, they are Killingworth, North Shields and Whitley Bay.

South Tyneside Council has 14 recycling sites running, a full list of them can be found on the website here.
