Charity’s Christmas tree recycling service returns

Leave the effort of getting rid of your Christmas tree to St Nicholas Hospice Care and help out a good cause at the same time.

In a break from their usual daily business, the charity’s House Clearance Team will be back on the road in 2021 with their growing Christmas tree recycling service.

Instead of focusing on house clearances for in the New Year, the team will be out collecting festive firs from January 11 to January 15 in the IP24, IP28, IP29, IP30, IP31, IP32, IP33, IP27, CO10, CB8 and CB9 postcode areas.

Last year the team collected more than 800 trees, which led to more than £3,000 being raised for the hospice, which supports those facing dying, caring and grief across the area. The biggest tree collected measured in at around 15ft.

There is a suggested £5 donation for the service, which was fully booked last year, and if you are interested please telephone 01284 747622.

You can also book your tree pick-up online at

You must reserve your pick up before 1pm on Thursday, January 7, 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.

All trees will be recycled free of charge by Urban Forestry.
