Longfield Community Hospice’s Christmas Tree Recycling Scheme

Longfield Community Hospice in Minchinhampton has launched its annual Christmas Tree Recycling Campaign, where, for a voluntary donation, the charity’s team of volunteers will collect your trees at the end of the festive season and take them to be recycled.

The hospice is hoping to collect and recycle more trees than ever this year and raise in excess of £40,000, which could help fund over 700 hours of Hospice at Home care. In previous years, as many as 2,800 households from across Stroud District, Cirencester and Gloucester have taken part in the scheme.

Once collected, the trees will be taken to recycling sites across Gloucestershire, including Painswick Rococo Garden and Highfield Garden Centre, where they will be chipped into mulch and reused at those sites making it an eco-friendly way to dispose of your tree.

The scheme is endorsed by Stroud District and Gloucester City Councils. 

To arrange collection of your tree, visit where you can make a voluntary donation to your local community hospice. Bookings can be made from 15 November until 3 January 2023.

The fundraising team are also looking for volunteers, vans to collect Christmas trees, or tree chippers from Sunday 8 to Tuesday 10 January 2023. To volunteer either with your time or if you have a van or chipper, then please contact the events team on 01483 886868 or email
