Real Christmas trees can be recycled again in aid of Manorlands

If you've got a real Christmas tree you can register now to have it taken away in the New Year and support the work of Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice.

The Christmas Treecycling is back for 2022, with Manorlands again partnering with Skipton Self Drive and Keighley Tree Services.

The team will be out and about collecting real Christmas trees from outside people's houses across the Aire and Wharfe Valleys from 8th to 16th January.

Residents in the following postcodes can take part in the scheme: BD13, BD14, BD15, BD16, BD17, BD18, BD20, BD21, BD22, BD23, BD24 and LS29.

The charity is suggesting a minimum donation of £10 per tree when booking a collection. Every donation made supports Manorlands to provide expert end-of-life care to local people who need it.

Trees for recycling can be up to 12ft tall - but all decorations and pots need to be removed and your tree will need to be left in an accessible place for the team to collect it on the day.

In the Craven area there are a few changes this year. Keelham Farm Shop will be collecting all trees that get registered for collection in BD23 as part of their sustainable Christmas campaign. You can also book your Treecycling collection at the checkout at Keelham Farm Shop if you buy your tree from there. Further north, the Settle District of Young Farmers Clubs is working on behalf of the project in villages including Ingleton, Clapham and Bentham.

Collections need to be booked by Saturday 8th January at sueryder.org/christmastree
