In its fifth year, the sculptural green recycled plastic bottle tree will be on display outside Jack Wills in North Street until Friday January 4 next year.

To celebrate the tree's arrival, the West Sussex Waste Partnership, Chichester District Council, Chichester BID and Jack Wills are hosting a switch-on ceremony between 4pm and 5pm on Saturday November 17.

They will be joined by the Prebendal Choir who will treat onlookers to some traditional Christmas carols and the waste prevention team who will be on hand to answer any recycling queries and offer advice on how to reduce using single-use plastics.

Deborah Urquhart, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for the Environment, said: '˜The tree is a stunning feature and we hope will serve to remind people of the importance of recycling this festive season. 

'˜Any plastic that is used '“ whether it's bottles, pots, tubs, or trays '“ should be recycled.'
