Christmas Tree Collection

Christmas Tree Collection

The green and charitable way to dispose and recycle your Christmas Tree

We are collecting and recycling real Christmas trees in Bristol on the 8 and 9 January 2021. Simply leave your tree outside your home on Thursday night and our team of volunteers and local business partners will collect it. All donations are welcome for this service and you can register your tree for collection here:

Register your tree

We will be collecting in BS4, BS5, BS9, BS16, BS20 and BS21 and a limited collection in BS21 and BS48. 

You can also drop your tree to St Aidan’s allotment, Nicholas Lane, St George on the 2, 3, 9 and 10 January, between 9 – 12:30pm. You do not need to register your tree if you are dropping it to this location.

We have partnered with JustHelping, a third party organisation, who will administer our collections and plan the routes for our teams of volunteers. Therefore St Peter’s Hospice will receive 90% of the donation received plus gift aid. 10% of these monies will be given to local organisations who have helped with the service.

Please make sure ALL of the decorations are removed from your tree as otherwise the collection team will not be able to take it. If you have a tree over 6ft tall please contact us to let us know so we can send the right size vehicle 

The collection will follow the latest Government guidelines. These guidelines are changing continually and our risk assessments will be updated to reflect this. Our collection teams will be provided with all the PPE kit needed and will work to the current guidelines. The safety of all is of paramount importance to us.

If the collection cannot take place due to Covid-19 restrictions or for any other unforeseen circumstances, donations received will be non-refundable. The collection will take place on the select dates unless stated otherwise.


We’re recruiting helpers to join the collection team on the 8 and/or 9 January.

If you have a van or you’re good at navigating, willing to help lift some trees, and have a big smile we need to hear from you! 

We will be doing a full safety briefing on the day to ensure everyone is safe.
