Maidmans to Support Christmas Tree Recycling Scheme
In January 2016 local charity Diverse Abilities held it’s very first Christmas Tree Recycling Scheme campaign to raise vital funds The service was offered to the residents of Poole, Bournemouth, Weymouth and East Dorset, whereby residents could book a collection of their used Christmas tree via the Diverse Abilities website (www.diverseabilities.org.uk) for a minimum donation of £5.00 per tree.
We are delighted to help support a worthy local charity as we help assist with collecting the Christmas trees. Located in Poole, we are well placed to provide a local collection service using our vehicles and staff.
Steve Webber, Maidmans Managing Director said “the Christmas Tree Recycling Scheme is an exciting way of helping deserving local charities raise much needed funds and help the environment by recycling the Christmas trees”.
Diverse Abilities first campaign was a great success with 246 Christmas trees collected and over £1,300 raised. Diverse Abilities would like to repeat this success in 2017 to collect even more trees and raise even more funds.
Tree collections will again be co-ordinated by the charity and volunteer collectors will collect the Christmas trees over the weekend of 7th and 8th of January – just after the 12th night of Christmas.
The collected Christmas trees will be recycled at Upton County Park and Eco Sustainable Solutions.
