Let us collect and recycle your tree!

If you’re getting a real tree this year, take the pain and hassle out of recycling it after Christmas and let us do the hard work. If you’re based in and around Herefordshire, for only £10 you can book our team of staff and volunteers to come and collect your tree between 6th-15th January 2022.

If you’re really organised, why not book our collection service before you’ve bought your tree and have peace of mind all over the festive period.

Spaces are limited per area, so make sure you book your collection ahead of Christmas to avoid disappointment!

The cost is £10 per tree and we can collect most sizes although anything over 7ft does make it challenging for the team so please consider an additional donation.

Once  we have your booking, you can rest easy knowing that we will come and recycle your tree for you once the festivities are over.

We will be in touch nearer Christmas to let you know what date/s we will be collecting trees in your area.

We will contact you via the contact details you gave us when you made your booking.

Do I need to be at home on collection day?

No you don’t. Simply leave your tree in an accessible space at the front of your property which our team can get to easily and safely.

Please do not block pavements and access roads/paths with your tree. If you do not have a safe and accessible space to leave it in such as a front porch/front garden/driveway, please get in touch with the team who will be able to advise you on ways in which it can be safely left for us to collect.

Remember to remove all tinsel and decorations and any pots or stands before leaving your tree out.

Real trees are recyclable and can be shredded into chippings which are then used locally in parks or woodland areas across Herefordshire. We send every tree we collect to be recycled in this way so that every part of it can be reused.

Sadly, artificial trees cannot currently be recycled. However, if they are in a good condition, our retail stores may take them. Please contact your local store to see if they are accepting donations.

All proceeds from our Christmas Tree Collection service goes directly to providing essential care for those who need it most, at any time they might need it. By booking a service like this one, you are helping us to care for patients and families this Christmas – thank you, from all of us at St Michael’s.
