Christmas tree recycling scheme open

St. Joseph’s Hospice has launched its Christmas tree collection and recycling service for residents living in parts of Waterloo, Crosby, Thornton, Hightown, Formby and Maghull.

The collection and recycling service will take place on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th January and will raise valuable funds for the hospice.

In partnership with Just Helping, a UK charity which inspires people to contribute to their local community, the scheme is run entirely by volunteers and is also an environmentally friendly way to dispose of Christmas trees as they will be recycled and used in the hospice grounds.

Residents in postcodes areas L22, L23, L37, L38 or L31 can book a collection now at for a minimum donation of £10. Alternatively, for a minimum donation of just £5, trees can be dropped off at the hospice over the same weekend in January where they will be recycled. Collections must be booked by 3pm on Tuesday 8th January.

Julie McAdam, senior fundraiser, said: “We are delighted to be working with Just Helping again this year and we are so very grateful for the support of all our volunteers, including local businesses, who help us out each year.

“Please support the hospice by booking your Christmas tree collection in nice and early so we can prepare and have the volunteers on stand by in plenty of time.”
