Sue Ryder is offering hassle-free Christmas tree collections in exchange for donations to support its work providing palliative and bereavement care in Gloucestershire.

Gloucestershire residents can get the new year off to a good start by recycling their Christmas tree with Sue Ryder, through its Treecycling Gloucestershire initiative. 

The national healthcare charity — which runs Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice, the only in-patient palliative care unit in the county — is collecting Christmas trees in selected GL postcodes between Monday 15 and Friday 19 January 2024, in exchange for a suggested donation.

Its team will collect the trees direct from your front door, garden or driveway, offering a convenient and environmentally friendly way to dispose of your Christmas tree to stop it ending up in landfill.

Real Christmas trees are completely recyclable, so every tree that's collected will be turned into compost or wood chippings that can be used in parks, gardens and landscaping projects 

The money donated will go towards helping Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice provide free palliative care for local people with life-limiting illnesses and bereavement support to their families.

This year's Treecycling Gloucestershire scheme is supported by Gloucestershire-based Greenway Tree Care and Landscaping and JB Event Hire. 

Anyone wanting to book a collection from Treecycling Gloucestershire can do so until Tuesday 9 January 2024.
