Charity Christmas tree recycling a success

Project raises over £4,000 for Hospice IoM

Hundreds of Christmas trees have been collected and turned into compost as part of a festive clear out organised by Hospice Isle of Man.

The public were invited to dispose of trees in skips placed around the Island in early January and make a contribution towards the disposal.

The recycling project, co-partnered by the Isle of Man Post Office, raised over £4,000 pounds.

Sharon Connor from the Hospice says the project, which started three years ago, took a lot of coordination and logistical planning.

She says the support received from the Post Office team was invaluable, and is looking forward to next years scheme.
