Christmas is just around the corner and that means Christmas trees will soon be commonplace in our homes. During the festive season, we would like you to think of Longfield and let us collect and recycle your real Christmas tree this year.

We are collecting trees from around Gloucestershire homes and businesses from Thursday 9th to Monday 13th January 2019 for a donation to the hospice.

But won’t people use the recycling bins provided by the Council?

You’ve forgotten to collect my tree!
Don’t worry – we plan to do a ‘mop up’ on Tuesday 14th January of any trees we missed. If we have attempted  to collect your tree on two separate occasions but have been unsuccessful then unfortunately we will not collect and it will be your responsibility to dispose of your tree yourself as this campaign is run by volunteers.
