Charity’s Christmas tree recycling service will be back on the road for 2023
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 regular daily business, the charity’s House Clearance Team will be back on the road in 2023 with their ever-growing Christmas tree recycling service.
Instead of focusing on house clearances for five days in the New Year, the team will be out collecting festive firs from January 9 to January 13, 2023, in the IP14, IP24, IP27, IP28, IP29, IP30, IP31, IP32, IP33, CO10, CB8 and CB9 postcode areas.
Darren Devine, the hospice’s house clearance and retail support manager, said: “Last year, we had a fantastic response and the service really was rushed off its feet. We collected and recycled more than 2,500 trees and raised an amazing £10,195 for the hospice.
“Our service in 2022 had a record-breaking year, but we’d love to raise even more this year as every penny really makes a massive difference to the work St Nic’s can do across West Suffolk and Thetford.
“We are also so grateful to have the support of TCL Landscapes and Grange Farm Christmas Trees, who will be recycling trees free of charge for us.
“Bookings are now open, so tick something off your to-do list and get your collection booked.”
There is a suggested £5 donation for the service, and if you are interested, you can book your tree pick-up online here. Alternatively, you can call 01284 747622.
You must reserve your pick-up before midday on Wednesday, 4 January, and all trees must be left outside of your property decoration free.
This year the service will be supported by TCL Landscapes and Grange Farm Christmas Trees, who will be supporting the initiative by recycling trees for St Nic’s free of charge.
