Christmas Tree Recycling

We welcome a donation in exchange for collecting your tree!



If you live in postcode areas CB1, CB2, CB3, CB4, CB5, CB22, CB23 & CB24 and you have registered your Christmas tree for collection, we look forward to collecting it for you on either 11 or 12 January 2019.

Thank you for your support!



How do I register for my tree to be collected? We are sorry you missed out this year, but registrations are now closed. We will have 2 skips on site at the hospice on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 January where you can dispose of your tree if you would still like to support this scheme. Simply bring your tree to our hospice in Shelford Bottom, pop it in our skip and make a donation! 

What time will you collect my tree?  Unfortunately due to the vast number of trees being collected, we are unable to give an exact time of when we will be in your area. Please have your trees out in time for the start of the collection period - 9am on Friday 11 January.   

Where should I leave my tree? Please leave your tree somewhere where it can be easily seen by our voluntary collection team e.g. in your front garden, by your back gate, next to your shed etc. You will have the opportunity to leave instructions when you register. We cannot take trees that still have their plastic bases or decorations on so please ensure these are removed in advance. 

What happens if my tree doesn't get collected? In the unlikely event that your tree still hasn't been collected by 5pm on Saturday 12 January, please contact the Fundraising Team ASAP on 01223 675888. If we have visited your property but have been unable to locate your tree, you will receive a ‘calling card’ informing you what to do next.  

Who do I contact if I have any further questions? Please contact the Fundraising Team on 01223 675888, or email

Working in partnership with JustHelping and Cambridge City Council.
90% of money raised from the collection will come to ARHC with the remaining 10% donated to other local charities. For more information, please click HERE
