Christmas tree lights
If you have opted for a wreath containing natural materials like ivy, holly or fir tree clippings, you will be able to compost the greenery (provided it isn't covered with excessive glitter), once you've removed it from the base. The decorative parts of the wreath such as ribbons, plastic flowers and berries and the oasis ring/base can be used again. You might like to keep these bits handy and have a go at making a lovely table decoration for your home in the Spring!
The best option is to home compost your paper decorations rather than recycle them. This is because paper decorations are often dyed in vivid colours and the paper has short fibres too - neither of which is ideal for recycling. If you don't have a home compost bin, you can check with your local council to see if you can include these items in your recycling.

Glass Baubles are not recyclable - If any of your glass baubles break, please wrap carefully and dispose of in your rubbish bin.
Plastic Baubles are usually made from types of plastic not widely collected yet in the UK and are likely to be covered with glitter which would impact on the recycling process. If your Christmas tree was supplied with plastic baubles you don't intend to use, why not consider donating them to charity or offer them to family or friends. Remember the old saying: "One person's trash is another person's treasure!"
