Happy New Year and Christmas tree collection

PWRA wishes all residents and their families a Happy New Year in these difficult times. We sincerely hope that this year is a better one and our community here can begin to interact as normal again.

Life after Christmas for trees can be hard…

For those of you that have Christmas trees that require disposal after the seasonal festivities, please be aware that Tower Hamlets do offer a free collection service for real trees (not plastic). This service runs from 4th to 18th January 2021 and is aligned with the normal kerbside food and garden collection service (Wednesdays in the case of Plymouth Wharf).

In order to use the service, remove all decorations from your tree first and place it out with existing food and garden waste on Wednesday 6th January or Wednesday 13th January.

In order to avoid trees blowing around the development in the event of high winds, thoses in houses should leave trees securely up against their fence at the end of their drives.

Residents in the flats should place their trees in the Block 4 recycling bin area (this is the area opposite the Block 4 stairwell between properties 53 & 54. Please take care not to block access to the bins for residents in that Block. We will then arrange with collection team to take all the trees in this area.

We kindly ask that residents who do not make use of this service to not simply dump trees in bin cupboards or elsewhere on the development as they will not be collected. If necessary, CCTV will be used to enforce and dumping of rubbish and offenders will be charged for removal.

Real Christmas tree recycling

Tower Hamlets will be collecting real Christmas trees for recycling between 6th and 20th January.  This will be at Plymouth Wharf on  Wednesday 11th and 18th January.

If you wish your tree to be collected please leave outside the front of your property (houses), or by recycle bin areas (flats) before these dates.

Anything left after these dates will not be collected and we remind residents that PWRA is not responsible for removal of such items so residents will need to make their own arrangements for disposal.

More details can be found on the Tower Hamlets website.
