JTH announces Christmas tree recycling scheme

JTH volunteers are ready and waiting to recycle your Christmas tree

John Taylor Hospice has a brilliant plan that will take the hassle out of your new year Christmas tree disposal – it has just announced a Christmas tree collection and recycling scheme which will be good for the environment and good for its fundraising.

For a suggested donation of £8, hospice volunteers will collect real Christmas trees between 11 and 13 January in the B23, B24, B72, B73 and B76 areas of Birmingham and Sutton Coldfield.

The scheme, which is being run in partnership with facilities management company Mitie and public services provider Amey, will raise vital funds to support the work of the hospice.
