Christmas tree recycling points are in place across Liverpool as the traditional date to take down decorations looms.
The collection points will remain in place until the end of January enabling city householders to dispose of real trees in an environmentally friendly way.
Twelfth Night, regarded as the final day of the 12-day festive celebration, is traditionally considered the last day you should keep decorations in place and this year it falls on Friday 5 January.
It’s the eve of Epiphany on 6 January which, according to tradition, marks the end of Christmas.
