Call for live Christmas tree drop-off point for Penrith

Penrith City Council has been asked to investigate providing a drop-off point for residents to dispose of their used cut Christmas trees.

Cr Karen McKeown told the November 27 council meeting she was often asked how residents could dispose of the live trees after the end of the Christmas period.

“We could mulch the trees and put the mulch onto council gardens,” she told the meetings.

Councillors are due to receive a memo on the issue.
