Vans and volunteers are needed to join Treetops Hospice efforts as our tree recycling scheme returns this Christmas.

From 5 to 10 January 2024, the hospice will be collecting real Christmas trees for recycling after the festive period, in return for a donation to the charity.
Volunteers with vans collect trees from driveways and bring them to designated recycling points across Southern Derbyshire and neighbouring areas of Nottinghamshire.

Volunteer to help with tree recycling

Vans or tippers, of Transit size or larger, are required to help the collection. Businesses, families, or community groups with access to these are encouraged to get in touch and provide support.
Vic Rocca, Treetops Key Events Relationships Manager, said:
We’re so excited to be offering Treecycling this year. It will be a really fun time and can help blow off the cobwebs following the festive feasting period.

Volunteers make a massive difference

“Volunteers who can offer a day’s help or even a few hours will make a massive difference to collect all the trees booked over the festive period.
“The proceeds raised from Treecycling helps us to care for even more patients and their families across the local community.
