I wish I had known - I saw one dumped, completely bald, a few weeks before Christmas in Hampden Road. That must have been at least from last year...
I saw that happening. The chap doing the dumping disappeared into the passageway behind the Salisbury, to the right of your picture.
Did anyone else notice that these trees have been dumped right under a fly-tipping poster ?
This is the first year we've not had free green waste collection, but someone has had the bright idea that it makes sense to allow this for free - collection from front yards still OK. Well done that someone.

This poor tree didn’t even get decorated! Green lanes near Selale.
Ah, as I asked here https://www.harringayonline.com/forum/topics/christmas-tree-kerbsid... there doesn't actually seem to be any guidance on when you should and shouldn't put your trees on the street. This one's on the council I'd say.
