You are currently browsing the tag archive for the ‘Christmas’ tag.

So now that the festivities are over what happens to your real Christmas tree? Well there are plenty of locations across the city where you can take your tree to be recycled.

For households with a brown bin the trees can be chopped up into manageable pieces and placed in the bin and put out for kerbside collection.

Alternatively, trees can be taken to any of the four Household Waste Recycling Centres at Dawsholm, Shieldhall, Polmadie and Easter Queenslie.

And up until Friday 19 January real Christmas trees can also be taken to:

  • Pollok Country Park, Burrell Car Park
  • Alexandra Park, off Alexandra Parade, car park next to the golf course
  • Kelvingrove Park, Kelvin Way, grass area opposite the bandstand

The trees collected in the brown bins or taken to the recycling centres are sent for composting to our re-processing partners and the trees taken to the parks are chipped and shredded on site for use within the parks. And chippings will be available for the public to take free of charge from Pollok Park.

 

At DRCET and De’ils On Wheels we like to recycle and reuse as much as we can and we have recently been putting our collective creativity to good use and we are delighted to offer a range of upcycled gifts – just in time for Christmas!

Our range of products includes:

  • clocks made from bike parts
  • clocks and bowls made from old vinyl records
  • keyrings, earrings and bracelets made from old bike chain
  • and De’ils On Wheels merchandise – ‘bike quote’ badges and keyrings, magnets and calendars!

Friends of Victoria Park are holding a festive Christmas Tree decorating event in Victoria Park at 11am on Saturday 16 December can the event will be rounded off with a few Christmas carols and songs.

They introduced this event last year and the tree close to the beautiful Oswald Clock at the small pond was a very cheerful sight over the festive period.

They have sprayed some pine cones and have ribbons ready to hang them up but they would also welcome any spare decorations or even better, some home made ones. If they have too many they might do up two trees to really put us all in a festive mood.

Children are very welcome accompanied by an adult. More information on their website.

The Whiteinch Centre is pleased to announce the return of their Christmas Market and Craft Fair from 11am to 2pm on Saturday 2 December!

They will have stalls, competitions and even an appearance from Santa himself – so come along and have some fun! The event is free to attend and is kid friendly. You can find out more on the Facebook event page.
