We all love a real tree until the time comes to dispose of it after Christmas. Instead of having all those Christmas tree needles in the back of your car, why not ask Teesside Hospice to pick it up and recycle it for you?
How does it work?
Each January, Teesside Hospice and our wonderful volunteers go around Teesside to collect your Christmas trees and recycle them! All that we ask is that you make a donation in return, to help us care for our patients living with terminal illnesses.
The simplest, greenest and most charitable way to dispose of your Christmas tree is to get involved in our Christmas Tree Recycling Scheme. Last year thousands of trees were recycled and raised over £30,000 for Teesside Hospice. We're hoping to make it even bigger surpassing the 2,461 trees collected last year & we can't do it without our community's support.
Our friendly team of Christmas elves will take care of your tree in the most environmentally responsible way, meaning you don’t need to make a trip to the tip or spend time vacuuming needles out of your car.
If we cannot see your tree, we will leave a calling card to let you know we visited.
How will your tree be recycled?
All Christmas trees will be chipped and recycled, reducing carbon emissions.
The collection is run entirely by our wonderful volunteers and covers Teesside postcodes from TS1 to TS23..
Donations are crucial to the success of this event and to ensure that we can continue to provide vital care to our patients and their families.
Thank you. We really appreciate your support, we couldn't do any of this without you.
The collections will take place on 11th, 12th and 13th January 2024.
