Go green and tree-cycle your Christmas tree this year and help people in our community! It’s a win for you, Katharine House and the environment!

This year, let us take away the stress of what to do with your real Christmas tree after the festivities are over.

Christmas is a time of year for family and friends and, of course, the all-important Christmas tree. We all love a real tree until the time comes to dispose of it after Christmas - and this is where we can step in.

Instead of worrying about how to environmentally dispose of your tree after all the festivities are over, you can make a donation to Katharine House Hospice and, in return, we will send one of our elves to pick up your tree to be recycled.

Interested? The process is simple:

  1. Make a generous donation.
  2. Leave your tree outside your home from 7 January at 8am. It may be collected on either 7 or 8 December.
  3. We’ll do the rest. We collect the trees and take them to our chipper to be recycled.

Tree collection: where, when and how

This is our first year delivering the tree-cycling scheme so we are only picking up trees from a limited number of postcodes, which are as follows:

  • OX15 (5..)
  • OX15 (0..)
  • OX15 (4..)
  • OX7 (4..)
  • OX7 (5..)

You will be able to register your collection details and make your donation between 15 November and 4 January at 2pm.

We are delighted to be supported by some wonderful people to make the Christmas Tree-cycle work, all of who are kindly donating their time to Katharine House Hospice. A big thank you to:
