‘Tree-cycle’ your Christmas tree with us!
Nottingham residents can have their Christmas trees collected from their homes – avoiding pine needles in their cars and queues at the tip – thanks to a new recycling scheme on offer from Nottinghamshire Hospice in the New Year.
The charity has teamed up with Nottingham company Streetwise Environmental to collect trees which will then be put through a woodchipper to be recycled or reused on local parks.
Volunteer van drivers will collect from households in Mapperley, Sherwood, Gedling, Burton Joyce, West Bridgford and Wollaton from 7th – 9th January, in return for a voluntary donation which will benefit patients with a terminal illness across Nottinghamshire.
Sarah Dunning, Corporate Fundraiser for Nottinghamshire Hospice, said: “If you are having a real Christmas tree this year let us help you dispose of it after the festive season is over. This is the easiest and greenest way to get rid of your tree as we will collect from your door!
“Every single penny raised through donations will make a huge difference to the Nottinghamshire community by enabling us to continue running our services free of charge to those who need us.”
Susan Harvey, Business Development Manager from Streetwise who will be helping to recycle the trees said: “Streetwise is dedicated to the environment and we value the importance of being eco-friendly.”
