STAFF at Webbs Garden Centre in West Hagley are urging residents to go green after the festivities.

Customers are invited to drop off their Christmas trees at the Kidderminster Road South garden centre, in a recycling initiative running from Saturday January 5 to Wednesday January 9.

Last year hundreds of people took up the offer to use the free service and Webbs hopes it will prove even more popular this time round.

The trees are made into chippings which are then composted for a year and used as mulch around the grounds at Webbs.

Webbs executive chairman Ed Webb said: “Having the tree recycling initiative right here on the doorstep makes it simple and hassle-free for local people to do their bit.“ Trees can be taken for recycling during normal opening hours.
