Heart of Kent Hospice will once again be taking the hassle out of recycling your real Christmas tree this January by offering to collect and recycle it in return for a donation.

Using a fleet of vans and volunteers, the Hospice will collect real Christmas trees from residents within pre-designated postcodes of the boroughs of Maidstone and Tonbridge & Malling, from 7 – 9 January 2022, which will then be recycled.

Registration opens: Saturday 20 November 2021

Registration closes: Tuesday 4 January 2022 11:59pm

Christmas Tree Collection Dates: Friday 7 – Sunday 9 January 2022

The postcodes that Heart of Kent will be collecting from are:

ME14 3 / ME14 4 / ME14 5

ME15 6 / ME15 7 / ME15 8

ME16 0 / ME16 8

ME19 4 / ME19 6

ME20 6 / ME20 7

By supporting Heart of Kent Hospice to recycle your real Christmas trees, each donation that we receive means that we can continue to provide outstanding care to people living with a terminal illness in our community, making a difference at one of the most difficult times in their lives.

How much does it cost?

We kindly ask for a donation in return for collecting and recycling your tree with a suggested donation of £10 per tree.  All donations will go directly to Heart of Kent Hospice.

Parkfoot has supported Heart of Kent Hospice for many years in recognition of the wonderful, necessary and tireless work they do. Parkfoot's Managing Director, David Charman, said:

"This opportunity to support Heart of Kent Hospice as Event Sponsor for their Christmas Tree Recycling is something Parkfoot is proud to do. We are also delighted to be sponsoring an event that encourages all of us to recycle our Christmas trees sustainably. The Hospice provides our community with an invaluable service which we appreciate and applaud. We encourage all our customers who can, to sign up for the scheme and wish Heart of Kent Hospice every success.”

Richard Gallagher, Head of Estates for Gallagher Group said:

“The Christmas tree recycling initiative is the simplest, greenest and most charitable way to dispose of your real Christmas tree. Heart of Kent Hospice means so much to us and to so many people in our community, we were only too happy to come on board again and help as the Environmental Partner. Once the trees have been collected and delivered to us, they are then recycled into agricultural mulch, which will then be used across farmland in our community. Any potted trees that are collected are replanted back onto the estate”
