As the festive season comes to an end, many people will soon be taking down their Christmas decorations.
But as the lights and baubles are taken off the tree, you may find yourself wondering what to do with your tree now that Christmas is over.
Thankfully, those in Norfolk and Waveney can recycle their unwanted trees.
In Norfolk, Christmas trees can be taken to any recycling centre in the county free of charge.
A list of Norfolk County Council recycling centres is available here.
Real trees are able to be recycled in the green waste containers.
Artificial trees can be put in the container for metals.
