Brown Recycling Supports Dougie Mac with Christmas Tree Collection Service
Published by Brown Recycling on 18th December 2020 -
In order to raise money to help support Douglas Macmillan Hospice’s palliative care services, Stoke-based company Brown Recycling will be carrying out a Christmas tree collection and recycling service in January.
Based in Stoke-on-Trent, Douglas Macmillan provides an invaluable service to over 3,500 patients with life-limiting illnesses each year. Known affectionately as Dougie Mac, the hospice has always been a beacon of kindness and hope for the local community, so it’s great to see local businesses helping out.
Here’s what Mitch Brown, sales director at Brown Recycling, had to say about the service: “We understand just how much Dougie Mac does for our local community - they’re heroes to us - which is why we felt it important to raise money for them with this Christmas tree recycling service. With the year that we’ve all just had, if the money we raise ends up putting a smile on someone’s face, then that's mission accomplished for us.”
The collection service sounds fairly straightforward. If you have opted into the service and live within the catchment area, all you have to do is leave your Christmas tree somewhere visible (for example, on your driveway) and a volunteer will come and collect it in their van. From there, your tree will eventually be delivered to a green waste processing facility, where it will be chipped for compost. You can learn a little more about what happens to your tree here.
If you’re interested in opting in for the collection service, the collections will take place on the 8th, 9th and 10th January 2021, and will cover the following postcode locations: ST1, ST2, ST3, ST4, ST5, ST6, ST11 and ST12.
Collections must be registered by Tuesday 5th January 2021, and there is limited capacity in some postcodes, so be sure to register your interest as early as possible. In return for the service, all that Dougie Mac asks is that you make a suggested donation of £10 to the hospice to support their palliative care services. However, if you would like to donate more, that would be greatly appreciated.
