Lichfield and Burntwood residents urged to recycle Christmas trees for St Giles Hospice

People in Lichfield and Burntwood are being urged to recycle their Christmas trees to raise money for charity.

St Giles Hospice has teamed up with Lichfield Tree Works to offer the service, which sees trees taken away for chipping.

Residents and workplaces can have their festive firs collected in exchange for a donation to the Whittington-based charity.

Nick Meade, Director of Lichfield Tree Works, said: “Our Christmas Treecyle service has doubled in size every time we have done it – and this year we are planning to make it even bigger and better as we expand to the wider St Giles Hospice catchment area.

“We will be collecting real Christmas trees from homes and businesses across Lichfield, Tamworth, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall and Burton in return for a donation.”

Collections begin on January 9. People wanting to use the service can book online before 12noon on January 6.

Aaron Coleman, from St Giles Hospice, said: “We are most grateful to Lichfield Tree Works for offering their services free of charge once again.

“The Christmas Treecycle is such a good idea – not only does it save people having tree needles in their car, it’s also a great way to help raise vital funds for their local hospice.

“We’re expecting to receive a big response this year so I’d advise anyone who would like to have their tree collected to register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”
