Don’t forget to reserve your Christmas tree collection with local hospice

Don’t forget to reserve your Christmas tree collection with St Nicholas Hospice Care’s House Clearance team before noon on Thursday, January 3.

The clearance team will be taking a break from its normal business and will be out on the road again from January 7 to 11 collecting Christmas trees from residential areas in and around Bury St Edmunds and taking them to be recycled free of charge at Culford Waste.

Darren Devine, the charity’s house clearance manager, said: “As a team last year we had a very busy start to 2018 thanks to our Christmas tree collection service. Last year we collected and recycled more than 300 trees and thanks to Culford Waste Ltd, who recycled the trees for us free of charge, we managed to raise £1,800 for the hospice, which supports people experiencing long-term or life-threatening conditions, death, dying and bereavement.

The team will be out collecting the festive firs from January 7 to 11 in the following postcode areas: IP24 IP28, IP29, IP30, IP31, IP32 and IP33.

You must reserve your pick up before noon on Thursday, January 3, and all trees must be left outside of your property decoration free. This service is for real trees only and the team cannot collect artificial trees.

There is a suggested £5 donation for the service and if you are interested please telephone 01284 747622.
