Have your say

PEOPLE in Gosport have until January 20 to put their Christmas trees out for free collection.

Anyone with a real Christmas tree should put it out for disposal by 7am on their regular garden waste collection day, after Monday.

It should be left outside in a visible location, be in one piece and have all decorations removed.

Gosport Borough Council’s waste contractors will then take it away for shredding or composting.

If you have a rooted tree you should make sure all the earth is removed from its base.

To find out your garden waste collection day, visit gosport.gov.uk/recycling.
