Once the festive season is over, hospice volunteers will pick up your real Christmas tree from outside your home or business for a suggested donation of £8.
Teams of volunteers will be out collecting in the following postcode areas: B23, B24, B34, B35, B36, B42, B43, B44, B46, B72, B73 and B76 on January 10 and 11.
Funds raised from the Christmas tree recycling scheme will help John Taylor Hospice provide specialist end of life care for people living with a terminal illness and their families – both at the hospice in Erdington and in people’s own homes across the West Midlands.
Hospice Community and Events Fundraising Manager Emily Boate said: “Our recycling scheme makes disposing of your real tree really simple. Just book your collection on our website, pop a tag on your tree and leave it outside before Friday 10 January. Our fantastic teams of volunteers will pick it up and recycle it for you – saving you time and hassle!
“Every tree we recycle and every donation we receive will help us provide much-needed care for local people and their families and we are so grateful to everyone who gets behind our campaign.”
For the second year running, the tree recycling scheme will be supported by a number of organisations including LH Tree Services, Amey, Mitie, Crown Highways, Curb Appeal and The Loftmen.
Michael Taylor, Managing Director of Waste Services at Mitie, said: “It’s a pleasure to be lending a hand to John Taylor Hospice once again this festive season and supporting this amazing charity. Our fantastic volunteers are excited to get stuck in with a busy day of Christmas tree collecting, as well as helping the planet by ensuring these trees are all recycled.”

Our Christmas tree recycling scheme would simply not be possible without the incredible support of our collection volunteers. Our massive thanks go to LH Tree Services, Amey, Mitie, Crown Highways, Curb Appeal and The Loftmen for getting behind this year’s scheme.
