‘Tree-cycle’ your old Christmas tree with St Barnabas

Find out which postcodes will receive a collection

St Barnabas hospice is offering a Christmas ‘tree-cycling’ service in the New Year for households across Lincolnshire.

The charity will be collecting and recycling unwanted Christmas trees from selected postcodes across the county to raise money for the care and support of over 9,000 people a year living with a life-limiting illness in Lincolnshire.

The service will run on Saturday, January 12.

Last year, the charity recycled 1,500 trees and raised £10,000 for families living with life-limiting and terminal illness.

Amelia Mochan, events fundraiser for St Barnabas said: “Our tree-cycle is the easiest way to get rid of your Christmas tree after the festivities are over and every donation made will make a real difference to the care and services we offer across the county.

“It certainly is the greenest and most charitable way to clean up after Christmas.”

The hospice will collect trees from select postcodes throughout Lincolnshire. For the full list of postcodes and to register your tree, visit the website here.
