Another record-breaking year for Warwickshire's charity Christmas tree collection

Leamington Editorial 18th Jan, 2023   0

IT HAS been another record-breaking year for a charity Christmas tree collection service in Warwickshire.

Over 3,300 trees have been collected and recycled thanks to The Myton Hospice and Pass the Smile Christmas Tree Collection.

Launched in December, the charities urged residents across the county to give a donation in exchange for having their tree collected at the end of the festive season.

And teams of volunteers were out and about across the county at the weekend collecting the trees for recycling.

Organisations KBTS, DPD, Amazon, Coventry Building Society, Mirius, Armstrongs Accountants, Tudor Environmental and JLR all leant a hand.

And there was an official shredding ceremony at Warwick Castle ahead of the wood chips being handed over to Russells Garden Centre for its pathways.

Organisers are also planning to send a quantity of the trees to aid production of biomass for fuel.

Launched in 2020, the project helps local charities to pursue their work and support communities.

This year, the collection service was extended into Stratford and Rugby, as well as Bedworth and Nuneaton.
