Christmas tree collection and recycling right from your doorstep

It’s that time of year already! We’re up in the loft, the decorations are out, into the garage to find those lights. The festive season is well and truly underway and local older people’s charity Age UK Lancashire have a question for you.

Will you be buying a real tree this year?

Many of us love the idea of a real tree.  But then comes the mess. The drama of taking it down, pine needles everywhere and hacking away at branches to cram it in the compost bin or car to take it to the tip. Nobody wants that right? Well luckily for you the local charity has arranged a Christmas tree collection and recycling scheme in the new year.  The trees will be recycled and put to good use, meaning that by using the collection scheme, you will play your part in important environmental work.

If you live in the Ribble Valley area, all you need to do is simply make a booking online, give a minimum donation of £10 and leave your tree outside your property before 8am on Saturday 8th January, without your decorations of course, and they’ll take care of the rest. You can kick off your new year with no hassle!

This is the perfect way to support your local charity this Christmas and do your bit for the environment.

You can book your Christmas Tree collection online by visiting and following the links to the booking page.  The deadline to book your collection is 10.00pm on Tuesday 4th January.

Age UK Lancashire relies on donations to enable them to carry out their vital work supporting vulnerable older people in Lancashire.  With your help they can continue to be there for those people that need them most.
