The region’s biggest Christmas tree recycling campaign, The Hospice Charity Partnership’s ‘Treecycling’, is back. Book your collection today to save yourself a trip to the tip, ensure your Christmas tree is responsibly disposed of, and support local people in desperate need of palliative and end of life care this festive season.

Last year, Treecycling raised almost £110,000 for The Hospice Charity Partnership. The Hospice Charity Partnership, formed by the merger of Birmingham St Mary’s and John Taylor Hospices, provides expert palliative and end of life care for people and their families living with life-limiting illnesses. The charity is 40% funded by voluntary donations, so fundraising is vital in ensuring it can continue to support people in desperate need of care.

As well as making a difference to local people living with life-limiting illness, Treecycling is a convenient, environmentally friendly way to dispose of your Christmas tree. After your tree has been collected by volunteers, it will be chipped into biomass fuel – taking the hassle out of disposing of your tree.

Regarding Treecycling, Jess Bolton, Community Campaigns and Digital Fundraising Manager at The Hospice Charity Partnership said:

“We are so excited to welcome back Treecycling, our flagship campaign. Not only is it a great service, it’s also a hugely important fundraiser for us, having raised over £500,000 for palliative and end of life care.

“By booking your collection and making a donation, you will make a difference to local people living with life-limiting illness, whilst making your life easier and being kinder to the environment – what’s not to love?

“A huge thank you to all of our wonderful supporters that have or will make their Treecycling booking in 2023 – we couldn’t do what we do without you!”

Treecycling runs across most of Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield and Solihull.
