With the festive season coming to an end, we're being asked to 'treecycle' when we get rid of our Christmas tree. Somerset Waste Partnership says they can be composted, chipped or shredded instead of sending them to landfill.

If you bought a Christmas tree with roots you can even plant it in your garden.
