Christmas Tree Collection and Recycling

Date of Event: 4 - 8 Jan 2023

Let our tree-mendous team of volunteers take the hassle out of recycling your Christmas tree this year!
The Christmas Tree Collection scheme is run solely by an army of generous volunteers who give up their time to drive collection vans island-wide, man phone lines, and organise registrations.
In return for a donation, volunteers  will pick up trees from outside registered people’s homes in January and deliver them to the green waste team at La Collette for conversion to soil improver for local farms and gardens.

When will the collections take place?

St Helier Business Collections will take place: Wednesday 4th and Thursday 5th January 2023

Residential Collections will take place: Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th January 2023

When must I register my Tree by?

St Helier Business Collections: 2pm on Tuesday 3rd January 2023

Residential Collections: 8am on Thursday 5th January 2023

What time will you collect my Tree?

Due to the vast number of trees to be collected, we aren’t able to give you an exact time when we will collect your tree.

For St Helier Business collections our drivers start collecting early on Wednesday 4th January. If possible, please leave your tree outside for collection with all decorations and tree stand removed.

For residential collections our drivers start collecting early in the morning so please leave your tree outside and ready Friday evening (6th January)

Where should I place my Tree?

Where possible, please leave your tree on your property, close to the road where it can be easily seen. If it cannot be left in view, please include information on where it is when you register, eg ‘Up the drive and through the gate.’

What is the minimum donation?

The aim of the collection is to raise as much money for Jersey Hospice Care as possible. The minimum donation is £10 per tree although we have included suggestion donation amounts on the registration form depending on the size of your Tree.

What should I do If you don't collect my Tree?

Please don’t be concerned if we don’t collect your tree on the Saturday as we are collecting until late afternoon on the Sunday. 

If your tree is still with you on Tuesday 10th January please let us know by filling out this form here 

With respect, please do not call the main hospice number out of hours, as this will take our nurses away from caring for our patients and their families. 

What happens to my tree?

It is taken away and shredded at the Green Waste site. It is then mixed with other vegetation and composted.

By recycling your tree, it also saves on waste. 

What if i have more than one tree?

We ask for an extra £5 per tree.  When completing the registration form, please let us know how many trees we need to collect.
