If like me the recent snowy conditions have been the perfect excuse to put off chores and generally skive, you may not have disposed of your old Christmas tree yet.

It's better where possible to recycle your trees (personally when I get round to it I'll cut ours up and burn it on our living room fire), and the following two recycling centres are probably the nearest in the Canterbury area of Kent.
