Newcastle Christmas Tree Collection
Newcastle City Council don’t usually collect Christmas trees, their website says that you should take your tree to one of their household recycling centres. However if you are unable to take your tree to a recycling centre St Oswald's Hospice run a treecycling scheme where for a minimum suggested donation of £10 they will come and collect your tree and recycle it for you. Helping you to be more environmentally friendly, while raising money for charity at the same time.
