If you Christmas Tree is looking a bit sorry now, and dropping needles all over your carpet, then it might be time to accept that Christmas is over and it's time for your festive centrepiece to be put to good use somewhere else.

The good news is that real Christmas trees are being recycled by the council, or turned into compost more specifically.

In Dorchester West Dorset District Council will be collecting real Christmas trees for composting between Monday 7 January 2013 and Friday 1 February 2013. You can book your tree recycling by visiting this page.
