Longfield Community Hospice is offering Gloucestershire residents the opportunity to dispose of their Christmas trees sustainably.
For a donation, volunteers will pick up your tree at the end of the festive season and take it to be recycled.
The tree collections will take place from Sunday 9 to Tuesday 11 January, 2022.
To book your tree collection, visit www.just-helping.org.uk/register-tree and make a suggested donation of £10 or more.
Once registered, volunteers in donated vans will collect the trees from outside your home. Fully recyclable, the trees will then be chipped, shredded and composted to produce mulch and soil improver for gardens and parks in the local area.
This year, the Longfield fundraising team hopes to raise in excess of £36,000. In previous years, as many as 2,700 households from across Stroud District, Cirencester and Gloucester have taken part. All money raised helps to fund the hospice’s vital work supporting patients, families and carers across Gloucestershire.
Claire Ellis from Longfield manages the collections. She said: “Do get in touch if you’d like us to come and collect your Christmas tree. We take the hassle out of the whole operation! Just go online to book your tree in for collection, leave it outside your house, and we’ll do the rest. You’ll be disposing of your tree in the greenest way possible, and helping support your local community hospice this winter.”
The deadline for registering trees is midnight on 3 January 2022.
