Have your Christmas tree collected and benefit local charity

The ever-popular Salisbury Hospice Charity Christmas tree collection and recycling initiative returns for the New Year.
The charity says it will deal with the hassle of disposing of your real Christmas tree in an environmentally-friendly way.

Between January 13-15, if you live in the postcode areas SP1, SP2, SP3, SP4, SP5, SP6, SP7, SP9 and (new for this year) SP11 7, SP11 8, SO20 6, SO20 8 it will collect and recycle trees in return for a donation.

Collected trees will be turned into chippings or compost, with the help of a team of volunteers.
The chippings will then be donated to local farms, where they are used as animal bedding and even feed.
By registering a tree, not only are residents helping patients and families in need of vital end of life care, they are also supporting the environment and the wider community.
Registration for the scheme closes at midnight on January 8.
After costs, 90% of monies raised through the initiative will go to Salisbury Hospice Charity.
The remaining 10% will be distributed to charities in the Salisbury community, the hospice said.
