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.
Other similar schemes are also available covering other parts of the city:
→ St Mary’s Hospice is also offering a collection and recycling service covering a range of postcode areas: more here.
→ Birmingham City Council provides a free recycling service for all residents able to deliver their trees to any of the following four country parks: Lickey Hills Country Park; Cotteridge Park; Sutton Park; or Woodgate Valley Country Park.
→ Birmingham Mail has a piece here on other ‘treecycling’ schemes.
