Christmas tree collection

This festive season, spare yourself the hassle of disposing of your Christmas tree and let Willen Hospice take care of it for you! Our hassle-free Christmas tree collection service is here to make your post-holiday cleanup a breeze, all while supporting a great cause. 

We’ll be collecting from even more postcodes this year, including Towcester: MK1 to MK19, MK43, MK46, LU7, and NN12 between January 5 – 7 2024. 

🌟 How it Works: 

  • Book Your Collection: Simply book a collection, and our dedicated team will pick up your tree from outside your property. 
  • Leave a Voluntary Donation: To support our vital work, we kindly ask for a voluntary donation of just £12. Every contribution helps us make a difference for local families in need. 
  • Collection: Leave your tree outside your property from 8am on Friday 5 January 2024. 

🌲 What Happens to Your Tree: 

Your Christmas tree’s journey doesn’t end with the collection—it gets a second life! Your tree will be transformed into wood chips which will be repurposed for use on farms and public lands, contributing to a greener, healthier environment. 

📢 Important information

Please ensure that you’ve removed all decorations and that your tree is outside your property from 8am on Friday 5 January.  Your tree should be collected by Monday 8 January at the latest. 

  • If your tree exceeds 8ft in height, is potted or has roots, please mention this when booking.
  • We can only collect and recycle real Christmas trees.
  • Please make sure all decorations have been removed from your tree.
  • Trees will need to be left outside and if you live in a flat, the tree must be left outside on the ground floor level.
